In your own Handmade Mixed Media Journal

with Jessica Kovan

May 4th & 5th



In this two-day workshop​,​ you will learn to create and play in a gorgeous mixed media art journal that you have made yourself.  Through the process your will gain insight into the world of art journaling — a NO RULES explorative and playful creative practice.

​A handmade mixed media art journal is ​made from recycled items of a student's life​ and provides a working surface that is not blank​ — hence doing away with those scary white page​s​!​ No two journals will ​​be the same. When completed, your mixed media art journal will look like a hardcover book, with a spine and you will already have started working inside it! ​

This will be a fun, technique-focused workshop. ​An art journal ​is ​a place to tell your personal story, capture emotions, and learn and experiment. Using color, texture, line, pattern, marks, collage, images, layers and words, it is a powerful and joyful tool for ​creating personal art. Come prepared to play and learn ... and walk away with a ​toolbox of new techniques and a ​gorgeous new art journal that you made yourself!​

Jessica is known for her friendly, supportive teaching with demonstrations and individual help throughout the workshop. No art experience necessary, yet experienced artists will learn creative ideas for filling their journals and including journaling in their creative practice.
