All mediums and experience levels. Find your purpose as a fine artist by keeping a daily journal for 30 days. Why try something new that doesn’t result in finished artwork? Journaling is a first step in finding your artist’s voice, your purpose, your inspiration. Everything that appears in a finished work of art is there for a reason; whether it be subject, color, composition, medium, application, or the many other elements that make your work identifiable as yours. A fine artist’s daily journal frees your mind and captures fleeting ideas, visual moments, and emotions – like a five minute sketch of some stupendous cloud formations, or a snip of fabric saved for the color, or a quote you don’t want to forget, or a painting clipped from a magazine, or one word that describes the day, or notes about a favorite masterwork. The goal is to fill two facing pages of an 8”x 10” +/- bound journal with content that interests and inspires you, in any medium, each day. One day can be a big scribble, another an intricate drawing, there can be collages of layers upon layers, or anything in between. It is your choice as an artist. Reach deep and think! You will be surprised how this practice reaffirms your creative spirit and brings new life to your finished work.
This class begins with a live instructor demo via Zoom, with handouts emailed the day before class. The following weeks the instructor will share tips and techniques, the artists will show and discuss the journal pages they want to share, and the instructor will give a challenge for the coming week, all via Zoom!
