Art Of JournalingFundraiser to support our youth
As we move into the winter months, we are all looking for fun and exciting activities to keep us busy and still interact with others in these stressful times. Join others in our wonderful community from the comfort of your home for an evening of learning, exploring and expressing ourselves with journaling while support a local youth!
Great fun for mothers and daughters to do together! Want to host a few family members, neighbors or friends at your home in one zoom window? No problem! Group windows welcome!
Art Journaling is a process of freeing yourself mentally by expressing your thoughts and then painting to relax and rewind. Your journal is a very personal expression that you can adapt for yourself to meet your needs.
This workshop provides the beginning steps to help you achieve this goal. Let’s go over some of the things you will need to know.
“Do I need to be an artist?”
“Will I be able to do this after the class?”
“What if I love this? Do you have more classes?”
“What if I am nervous about being the only one there who can’t draw?”
“How much will the supplies cost?”
You can plan on between $30 – $40 dollars. You can spend more by getting better quality paint and expensive brushes, but I would encourage you to keep the cost on the lower side and go with the recommended supplies. I have given these specifically for two reasons.
- So you do not feel like your supplies are too precious and are afraid to use them because you might make a mistake.
- I want you to have the freedom to explore and discover what you like so moving forward you only spend money on the things you will really use and not feel frustrated by.
If you have a daughter who would like to join the workshop, the paints and medium will work for both of you, but you will each need your own of all the other supplies.
“Are the supplies easy to find?”
Rather call to regsiter? Not a problem.
