Learn the basics of art journaling in a space where there is no judgement, no criticism, just encouragement, and exploration.

Art journaling is a creative and expressive way to sort through your thoughts and feelings and a valuable tool for your self-care toolbox.


In this 6 week class I create a calm and supportive space for journalers to truly feel comfortable expressing themselves. Using writing, painting and collage we will learn how art journaling can help label and address feelings. Art journals are a safe place to express yourself without the pressure of having to share until you are ready.

This is a no-rules, can't do it wrong art class where all levels of art experience are welcome.

Perfectionism, fear of making a mistake, self-criticism and judgement are just a few of the things young people are facing that can impact their mental health. This class is a safe space to try, explore, allow, let down your guard, and practice being gentle with yourself.

One of the most helpful exercises we do at art journaling is write, and then cover up what we wrote so no one can ever read it if we don't want them to. This part alone-giving people a safe place to express themselves in a way that can never be judged is so freeing and empowering.

Who is this class for?

This class is for:

  • anyone looking for some tools to help them manage their mental health
  • people looking for connection with others in a safe and creative space
  • creative people who are shy and tentative about putting marks on paper
  • anyone looking to get in touch with their inner artist-but has been discouraged or criticized or corrected (there's none of that going on here!)
  • anyone who likes a good laugh, (and sometimes a good cry)

    What you will get out of it:

    • 2 hours a week where you can breathe, be safe, and be yourself
    • connection to other journalers sharing their journey with you
    • some peace you may not have known you needed
    • an opportunity to examine some things in your life you haven't had time for
    • a realization of your own creativity
    • a place and space to express yourself safely and freely

    Art Journaling can be vulnerable.

    This class is a place where feelings get felt, expressed, and witnessed. Art journaling has a way of opening us up to often hidden things. It makes us vulnerable and calls upon our courage. These things we are free to share with the group, (or not) so if you are ready to be supportive and be supported-please join us.

     

    Details

    We will meet every week over Zoom for 6 weeks and spend 2 hours exploring our creative selves.

    This was my first-time art journaling. I used to keep a journal when I was in high school (years ago), then my sister found it and read it, Art journaling is interesting, the message you write is hidden in the artwork... It was fun to play with colors and images, no artistic experience was required and I learned new things about art mediums, textures, color combinations. Anna, thank you for sharing your tips and techniques.

    Art Journaling with Anna has changed my life! I love the process involved in creating each page. Transforming thoughts into Art and learning not to judge my work has brought me great joy! I've never been one to write in a journal...but THIS!! This is it for me! I am such a visual person so I get so excited at the idea of "making something".
