Three Sundays, September 24 - October 8

Ages 18+

Discover the joy of art journaling. We will start by adopting a "seeking" attitude to find compelling subjects to draw from life, then learn how to build interesting journal entries by arranging images with words to create a visual narrative. Make journaling a habit by creating a routine that includes developing sketches and sharing your work. Some experience with drawing and painting is recommended.
