This class is about really, really easy journaling. Single flat pages are the starting point, simple yet dynamic journaling techniques are applied, and a spontaneous, free-thinking playful approach make this journal one you will return to, over and over.
We will include text about what we are seeing and hearing, both in class and out, then add map-making, wax rubbings, painted tissue collage, pochoir, funky-doodle text and page design on the fly. We will learn about listening, seeing, and being in the moment without censorship. Spontaneity is the key; just get it down! Collect doodles and signatures, make class notes, record the weather, all on these pages. I will show you how to get the basics quick, and embellish later.
When the stack of pages is finished, we will bind them into a book and make a soft case for it. Your enchanting Artfest experience will be contained inside. This is the perfect technique for an event like this or for travels; playful, easy, and satisfying.
