IllustrativeJournalingMonPMJan

Monday PM Class JANUARY

In this course we will focus on the marriage of words + imagery and learn ways to be inspired to keep a daily visual journal. From different styles of lettering to ways of weaving images and pictures together to exploring meaningful journaling prompts we will explore it all!

I’ve been keeping a visual journal for 30 years and it has helped me process my feelings, better understand the world around me, and keeps me inspired to make art part of my daily practice. I can’t wait to share my love of this process with you!

To get warmed up, each class will start with multiple prompts and demonstrations that you may watch and or participate in (at your own speed.) We will then have a final prompt and everyone will get to make a piece of their own during that time with the techniques learned during class. Sharing at the end is optional.

This class is suited well for all including beginners, professional artists and everyone in between. It will be a nurturing space that inspires the student to move towards their creative edge. It is an adult course, but teens are welcome to participate as well. Children under 13 may accompany an adult taking the course.

COST: By Donation (students have been paying anywhere from $5 – $50 per class which comes out to $20-$200 for the whole course. Please pay what matches your financial means and needs. No on turned away due to lack of funds.

DATES: We will meet 4 MONDAYS; January 4, 11, 18, 25 – 5pm-7pm Pacific Time 

Each class will be recorded that day and the link to view it will be sent along with the notes from the class each week. Recorded classes are only available to those who register for the class so we can keep a safe and nurturing space for those to express themselves.

SUPPLIES: PLEASE BRING THE ART SUPPLIES for the MEDIUM YOU WOULD LIKE TO WORK WITH DURING THIS COURSE.

The only materials I will suggest are a black pen or pens of your choice to write with – it needs to be permanent if you want to add color that is water-based. The pens I love best are:

PENS:

Micron Pigma (set of 6 different size nibs)

set of 8:

Black Sharpies are fun too, but they bleed through the page – I will demo different pens and supply you with links for you to purchase them if you wish.

JOURNAL: (any journal or notebook that has mixed media or watercolor paper) If you are just going to use pen with no color, you don’t need it to have thick paper.
