About This Class

Welcome to the Art Journaling for Beginners series. The series is aimed at anyone who feels that they would like to be more creative, but who feel very intimidated by the thought of doing anything creative. 

The aim of this short class is to nudge your creative spirit into expression on the page. We do this by going right back to safe and comfortable basics - simple shapes and a pencil. That's all. You can create expressive pages in your art journal using only a grey graphite pencil, and when you feel more confident in your ability to express yourself visually on a page, you can take a look at the extra playwork section where I give you some ideas on how you can take this lesson further.

You'll be able to fill many pages in your art journal after this lesson, but still remain creatively safe and not land up feeling overwhelmed. 

The aim of this series is to coax your creative expression onto the page using simple and safe techniques, and that's exactly what you'll find in this course. 

So get your pencil and art journal ready and I'll see you in class;-)

Happy art journaling!

art journaling feels like such a mystery to me - I don't even know where to begin! this was a great intro.
This class really removes all the pressure from art journaling and helps build self-esteem. It's also a great way to remember that to flex the creativity muscles all we need sometimes is go back to the basics! A very accessible and relaxing class :)
