Spontaneous Journaling is a fun evening workshop of play, bravery and learning to listen to your inner voice. Whether you are completely new to journaling or need to break through your artist’s block and really start creating - this workshop will help you fill page after page with color, brushstroke, mark making and writing too. Learn methods to let go of preconceived notions about what to paint and how to paint and allow spontaneous magic to happen as colors interact. Work with simple acrylic painting techniques to fill your journals with color. We’ll move paint from one journal to another and use tools at hand for stamping and making marks as well. Students will work with gesso and acrylic paints, but are welcome to add in other favorite media or work with stencils. Finally we will also work with some simple journal writing prompts to add lettering to your pages. Bring 3+ journals any sizes (can be already in progress) to add page after page of color, patterns, mark making, writing and fun.
