What is an Art Journal?

A journal to express your own thaughts and emotion. Or just to try out new ideas, finding  trust in your own creativity, all above and more. Not necessary just with letters and words, but also with doodeling, painting,collage, drawing, stamping or stencils. There are no rules, just about anything goes.
Once a month I open my studio in Bauma for anyone interested. To take part you don‘t have to be an artist, also there is an artist in everyone of us…
All you need is curiosity and a love for experimentation. There is no right or wrong, just a joyful trying out.
Creating an art journal is all about you, but sometimes we need some help to get started. With the help of the prompts, which you can follow along more or less, you create your very own pages, try out all kind of materials and learn about different design techniques.
Where to start, what do I need? First of course a journal with some heavier paper, that can handle wet medium and can be collaged. Preferably spiralbound with a bookcover in craftpaper that can be embellished. (You can bring your own or buy one from me)

Starter Art Journal

Are you afraid of an empty page in the Art Journal, don’t you know where to start? Or do you sometimes not have enough time to fill a whole page in one go?

In my studio we make a spiral bound Art Journal with many backgrounds. This serves as a starting point for your creative ideas with collage, painting, doodling and more.

But what is an art journal for? Well, maybe you want to express something, or you need a place where you can write down your feelings and thoughts. But maybe you don’t want to express feelings, maybe you just want to play with colors. It’s all good, because your art journal is your playground.

In this course I want to provide ideas, tools and techniques that can be implemented without a big budget. Painting techniques, stamps and stencils, dripping technique, scribbling and more are introduced and you choose what seems right to you at the moment.
An art journal is a great way to develop your creativity, even if you don’t think you are.

On demand this class can also be booked as a 2 day Workshops if there are at least 2 participants

Magic Funky crazy collage

Collage is the art of creating a two-dimensional image by combining all kinds of materials on a substrate. In other words, it’s just fun and an inexpensive, playful piece of art that anyone can make. It’s a way to an artistic representation and simply gives you a good time.

Bring it with you: Magazine snippets that you love because of their texture, shape and/or colour, silk papers, napkins, scissors with a good sharpness and/or a Xacto knife
– Two to four watercolour papers about 20 x 20 cm as substrate (I recommend 300gr it warps less) or if the colour doesn’t bother you, you can use cardboard (e.g. from packaging, no corrugated cardboard) as substrate.
