MY SECRET GARDEN: Keeping a Private Journal - October 2023
Keeping a Private Illustrated and Lettered Journal
Second Session: Sunday, October 8th
1:30-3:30 PM PST
This year-long series offers a class every month.
You can sign up month to month. If you miss a month and decide you’d like to take it, it will be available as an on-demand lesson. Each month, our class will begin with a short demonstration and discussion about various facets of keeping an illustrated journal. After demonstrations, there will be time for working on your own journal during class with help at the ready in an open studio format.
Each month will have a theme and the discussions will build from previous sessions over the course of a year. Each session will be offered independently, no need to commit to a year nor take each class offered.
The only "homework" will be in the form of prompts or ideas to get you started with the notion of holding each other accountable to creating a habit.
In this second session of the series, we will begin by sharing pages we have created since we last met if desired.
Our discussion will be a continuation about staying motivated and methods for drawing our focus inward.
Demonstration: Finding your focus in a labyrinth: A virtual walk in my garden, finding inspiration in new places. A mindful approach to a sketchbook using Zentangles, Mandalas and Labyrinths.
Students will have time to work in class and ask questions, especially about setting and intention and committing to regular entries in the journal. In preparation for the November Session a brief preview of finding fonts and lettering will wrap up this month's session.
A supply list will be sent to students prior to class.
This class is in conjunction with Cloud 9 (cloud9artschool.com)
