 Art Journaling is beneficial to artists, hobbyists, or anyone, who wants to be creative. An art journal is a form of visual record keeping of thoughts, memories, and emotions. It can also be used to develop and play with various techniques and experimental mark making. Journaling can help generate new ideas and methods as well as serve as a creative outlet. In this course, students will develop their own art journal and together, we will explore mixed media techniques to establish an art journaling practice of experimentation and visual record-keeping. No artmaking experience is required!
