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)

Every first Thursdayevening of a month from 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm. Costs each evening CHF 25.00
Subscription for 8 evenings valid during a calendar year at CHF 185.00
All paint and collagematerials are included.
The Strathmore visual journal size about 30.5 x 22,9 can be purchased at the first visit for CHF 18.90.
