Mixed Media Journaling (ID# 2018-4733)

 (7 weeks)
with Carissa Schlesinger
Ages: 16+
Members - $105.00 / Non-Members - $126.00

The first step in artistic development is the ability to sketch, express ideas, and work though a blank page. Learning to journal helps you work though mistakes without fear of judgement, and learn from those mistakes. Using our phones or cameras, we’ll peek into our stored images to see what inspires us. These pictures often represent ideas or passions, and we’ll use these to create meaningful expressive mixed media pages in our journals each week. Using paint, collage papers, glue and other media, we’ll express ourselves visually and promote our own freedom of expression. A blank page is not a problem in this class!
