Is your inner world craving creative expression? You can answer the call through the beautiful practice of Art Journaling. In this two day workshop, you will be immersed in creativity and shared experiences with like minded people.
Through the use of poems, writing, collage, paint and more, Heather will guide you in building journal pages based on universal themes such as compassion, ancestral memory and more. The making of collage papers for use in our journal pages will culminate in the 2nd day of creating a book cover using hand made book cloth and adornments. Each person’s book will be unique and personal.
Bring a bagged lunch and any personal collage papers, images or ephemera that you might want to include in your book. I will have plenty of material for you to work with so this is optional. All other materials are included.
This is a restful, meditative and enjoyable workshop where you will learn technique but, more importantly, you will have time to rest and socialize in a contemplative creative space.
No experience necessary.
What is Art Journaling? It can take many forms. Heather’s approach combines brief meditations, poems, writings, personal reflection and other art tools to develop meaningful art pages meant for personal expression. Heather shows you how to use art making techniques using a variety of mixed media to create art journal pages in the form of a book. The result is personal and explorative rather than intended for some external, commercial endeavor. However, for artists, it can be a way of exploring ideas and to find inspiration.
“You will know that when all’s said and done “to become an Artist” means nothing: whereas to become alive, or one’s self, means everything.”
– E .E. Cummings
