The Lumsden and District Arts Council is holding a spring workshop all about Art Journals!
What is art journaling? Art journaling is play, exploration & experimentation wrapped into one – imperfection is ok!
In this workshop you will explore both the written and visual components of this creative art form; you will have a chance to try numerous painting and decorative techniques and you can explore any theme for the written part of your art journal. This will be a fast paced workshop so that you can try lots of quick creative approaches and go home with lots of great ideas!
Basic art supplies and a sketch journal will be included in the cost but you should bring a plastic gift card, 6 magazines that you can cut up, a dark sharpie permanent marker, and watercolour paints (if you have them). No artistic skills or talent required!
