From 1:00 until 4:00
During this comprehensive workshop we will explore a variety of journaling techniques, styles and tools. You'll learn to conquer your fear of the blank page and create a safe place for personal expression that can help you no matter what your goals are.
Use your journal to plan your day and get organized, as an outlet to track a larger goal and keep your motivation high, as a bullet journal to keep tabs on daily routines/goals, or simply as a place to express your emotions and creativity without fear of judgment.
We will help you find a journal style that works for you and your unique situation.
Art journals are for anyone - even those who claim to have "no artistic talent". Art journals tap into both the creative and analytical sides of the brain and promote cognitive health, aid problem solving skills and help you manage stress.
