You may be wondering: uh, what’s an art journal? The honest and totally unhelpful answer is: whatever you want it to be! But here’s a more helpful answer:
An art journal is a notebook that you fill with drawings, paintings, thoughts, words, lyrics, photos, magazine cutouts, and ephemera from your life.
Your art journal can have lots of words or no words at all. It can be pretty and messy or just messy. You can use it to practice art techniques that interest you, to document your life, to express your emotions. Ultimately, art journaling is about you and your unique life and your art journal is there to accompany you on the journey.
With Get Messy, art journaling is our medium for creativity. It’s not about final art pieces to decorate the walls of a gallery or your home (though we will totally support you in that endeavor). It’s about creating for the sake of it and doing so with a community of other creators cheering you on.
In this class we’ll show you exactly how to start. Today. With everything you already have.
