Creative Self-Reflection Through Visual Journals

November 8, 2019 – November 14, 2019

Rachel Simmons

Stuck in a creative rut or just need time to reflect on your life? During this workshop students will explore the connections between creativity, self-reflection and mindfulness through the visual journal, which is a unique fusion of creative writing and art. You will learn how to use techniques like erasure poetry, guided memory and sensory writing, image transfers, monotype printmaking, drawing, collage and basic bookbinding in your journal practice. Each participant will leave class with a hand-bound mixed media visual journal and a sense of artistic renewal and connection with others. Open to all skill levels.




COURSE FEE: $600
