Would you like to learn a skill that will help you to be creative, de-stress and reconnect with yourself? If you are looking for a fresh, more mindful approach to art making, then Art journaling is for you.
Art Journaling is a fun and simple way to incorporate creativity into everyday life. An art journal is a great place to experiment and try out different approaches to art without the pressure of creating a masterpiece. It is an artistic form of self-expression – instead of using words alone; you will be using various media and different art techniques to express your creativity. In a busy world, largely driven by technology, taking time to be creative can often seem frivolous and indulgent. But studies show that creative activities encourage positivity and significantly improve our wellbeing. Art journaling is a simple and effective way to de-stress and practice self-care.
Join us for this 6-week Introductory course in Art journaling with Sai, an experienced teaching artist, avid art journaler and calligrapher. From simple mark making to elaborate mixed media art you will learn a variety of new skills; gain confidence in your artistic ability and develop an amazing creative habit that is both enriching and nourishing. Whether you have five minutes or half an hour to spare, Art journaling will inspire you to be creative, practice self-care and reconnect with yourself.
