The idea of my daily visual journal began as a challenge to myself to create art everyday and generate my own inspiration. In this workshop I will illustrate techniques that I use to create my daily visual journal pages and how you can incorporate these techniques into your own daily visual journal.
In addition, each technique is followed by a self reflection prompt for you to think about and write about on the backside of your visual journal entry.
If you can’t make it to the studio each week, you can participate online through a secure server. I will be active in the discussions to provide feedback and answer questions.
