Learn to put creativity into everyday life and give yourself permission to relax with this fun journaling course! Make personalized journal pages and embellish them with your own writing, pictures and design elements. You’ll learn to draw a variety of small decorative pictures and use markers, pens, watercolour pencils, rubber stamps and ink to create your pages. Learn to make accordion books and hand–sewn bookbindings for journals. (These techniques work for memory books and small photo albums, too.) Add covers, pockets, page–marking ribbons and tags. The course includes lots of idea-starter tips to get you journaling happily. BONUS! All of the skills you learn will also work for making greeting cards, gift tags, wall art, hand-painted papers and more.
From Andrea Trace: “Journaling is a low–pressure way of kickstarting your imagination and gives you a quick and relaxing way to get a bit of healthy creativity into most days. This course blends fine art and craft and is perfect for both beginners and experienced artists. We’ll do some basic bookbinding and collage, learn to cut rubber stamps and design multi–use pages. This is a course that helps you express your unique voice and vision.
“Adding creativity to every day is a game–changer. You’ll look at yourself with greater appreciation when you take time to embrace and express your intuitive side on a regular basis. Here’s a link to an interesting article in the New York Times about getting (and keeping) your inner artist active.”
Cost: $150 + hst for the 3 classes. Art materials extra.
