Instructor: Alice Pennes
An art journal is a way to document time — sharing with the pages your grief, joy, anger, and hope — and also the mundane and beautiful aspects of life. The pages may not all be “good-looking” but they may help you sort through these days and months that seem to run together. This workshop will show you how to build a dynamic journal page and document your experience living through this unprecedented time. We will focus on layering different materials, techniques to disguise and highlight your writing, finding unexpected beauty and as always letting go of perfection when working in your journal. We will discuss how to use your journal to make the best of small moments of time to yourself and how to use your journal in a non-linear way. We will also cover what you can do with very basic materials. Open to beginners and more experienced journalers alike.
