What is an Art Journal?
It's a book or a journal or a diary. It can be store-bought handmade or a book that you alter. Record memories, observe life, sort out your thoughts, explore your creativity, express your faith, it is completely up to you. One of he many joys of art journaling is that there are no limits. We've all kept a journal or diary at some point in life, and this is the same idea, but instead of using only words, we add colors and textures and papers in collages that can highlight your thoughts or keep them completely private.
We offer a free Intro to Art Journaling class every 3 months, (and soon to be online) which is a great way to try it out.
