Play and experiment with art techniques; process thoughts and feelings; document your life! Art journals combine images and words to express a thought, feeling, or idea, manifesting into your own personal journey of creative expressionism.

In honor of Earth Day, you'll have an opportunity to ramble around the barn's five acres to gather beautiful natural objects and found materials to incorporate in your journal-making.

No artistic ability is required. In this workshop you will learn how to be loose and just enjoy being in the creative moment. Art supplies provided. Pease bring an old book to serve as your journal.

$25/ limited to 12

Includes mid-day break with picnic lunch & free writing time. Bring something to eat or share ~ we'll supply the bevvies!
