About This Class

“I think that there is beauty in vulnerability, and I do not think that your feelings have to be pretty to be beautiful.”

Known for her emotionally honest work, artist and illustrator Jordan Sondler guides you through five exercises that will help you express yourself through art and connect more deeply with your feelings and identity. With her warm sense of humor and approachable teaching style, working through these meditative exercises with Jordan feels like working through them with a friend.

In this thoughtful and from-the-heart class, you’ll learn:

  • Guidelines to help you with your visual journaling
  • The importance of practicing these skills
  • Ways that visual journaling can work for you
  • A better sense of yourself and your internal experiences

Join Jordan and your classmates in a fun and meditative class that anyone can benefit from — whether you’re an artist by trade or someone who loves to doodle in the margins of your notebooks — and enjoy a no-pressure way to express and process your experiences.
