About this Live Session

Widen the horizons of your creativity by discovering a new way to journal!

Skillshare Premium Members are invited to join us on Wednesday, June 23rd for a live online Zoom session with Sophia Emmerich, all about expressing your creativity through collage journaling. The session will run for approximately 60 minutes. Click the button above to register! 

This live session will include:

  • Guidance on everything from layout and composition to what kind of materials you can use in collage journalingsome of them may surprise you!
  • Creativity-unleashing inspiration from Sophia’s own beautiful collage work
  • The use of paint, glitter, and other fun stuff to make your work really pop!   

Throughout the session, you’ll be encouraged to work alongside Sophia and ask questions. There are lots of materials you can use to make a collage journal of your own -- Sophia will go over some of your options in class -- but all you’ll need to get started is a journal and something to write with. 

Sophia Emmerich is a Berlin-based photographer with a passion for challenging social norms and their impact on the perception of beauty. She’s worked with Adobe, Spotify, Fabletics and more brands, with a focus on representing the LGBTQIA+ community in the images she creates. Her photography shows beauty regardless of gender, identity or sexuality, and brings visibility and representation where it’s been long overdue. 


Pride Month at Skillshare

Expression is inherent to who we are as human beings, but for marginalized groups, expressing individuality has too often come with a price. And yet, creative expression is the foundation for how we showcase humanity, fight for human rights, communicate our individual experiences, and develop empathy.

This Pride Month, we welcome you to unleash your creative freedom. We see you in your full glory. We want to celebrate how far you’ve come – this year, this lifetime, this generation! What happens when you take a moment to reflect on your creative power and are given the space to honor it?

In that vein, we're thrilled to present a month of Live programming developed, taught and hosted exclusively by LGBTQIA+ folks. Our LGBTQIA+ teachers and hosts are part of our regular rotation of wonderful, talented folks leading these sessions, but this month we are spotlighting this community in particular. We hope that these classes bring you joy in expressing your creativity and your inner self, whatever form that expression might take. Thank you for joining us, and we'll see you again soon!
