Join Carolyn Terry and co-host Susan Callan as they share their practice of Art Journaling. Carolyn has been keeping art journals for over 20 years and has lots of tips and tricks for getting started, from overcoming the fear of a brand new journal to finding topics to write/illustrate to keeping your daily (or almost daily!) practice going.
Carolyn spent half of her teaching career as a middle school art teacher, and found art journaling to be a very good way to keep her own art work going. After retiring and moving to the Northwest, she delights in the lush plant life, large bird populations, and persistent raccoon families that give her lots of material for both her art journals and her artists’ books.
Carolyn will talk about both handmade and purchased journals, art materials to get started (most of which you’ll already have), where to get ideas, how to decide what to put in the journals, and how to keep going.
These sessions promise to be lively - with comments, Q&As, creativity and laughter.
The first session will be a presentation of recent work by the guest artist. The second session will be a group sharing of participants' work inspired by the presentation.
These events will be held each month on the first and second Friday of the month. The subject will change each month.
