Art Journaling – Drawing from Life

April 27 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Keeping an Art or Visual Journal is a wonderful way to support your art practice or simply settle a busy mind and relieve stress.

All you need to begin is paper and a pen/pencil.

We will meet weekly to learn about and develop ways in which we can inhabit our journals, making them places of refuge, play, and discovery.

Seed ideas and prompts will be given each week, which we will ponder, expand on, and experiment with.

Whether we’re sketching, writing, doodling, or collaging…. you will find that you’re expressing yourself in your own way and finding those things that resonate with you.

And doing this in community can be super inspiring and supportive.

Registration is required through Eventbrite.

Please register for each date that you plan to attend.

If you are coming to the Library, in person, please contact Gianna and let her know to reserve a space for you.
