The Art Journal Workshop with Lenore Lyons


  • $160.00  -  Non-Member
  • $150.00  -  Member


Friday, April 9
from 10am-4pm


This class will provide an overview of art journaling and the many ways to document life. Kids will socialize safely while playing with all sorts of art supplies, some familiar and some that are new and fun, to discover things they really like. We will look at lettering of various sizes and styles to convey a message, including secret writing (sometimes you need that kind of thing) … and we’ll create backgrounds with color and texture and learn interesting and easy ways to add images. It is freeing and fun to experiment with color and layering; any "mistake" can be altered or covered. Everyone will keep a record of their projects so they can recreate the activities at home. No art experience or drawing ability is necessary at all! New skills and techniques will be added in easy progression. Each student will get a stack of paper to use during the day, bind the pages into a journal later, and finally go home with a spiral-bound journal and a set of water brushes. Join us and see if art journaling is for you.


This class meets in the Owl Hall on the main level of the Education Wing from 10am-4pm with a lunch break at 12:30pm.


All tools and materials will be provided.
