Art Journaling For Beginners with Angharad Caceres of Craftiness
What is Art Journaling? Think of it like keeping a diary but using paint, colour, and images instead of just words. The point is the process, so no worries about 'talent' or perfecting how to paint a tree. This class will help you tap into your creative juices, the ones that literally shift how your brain works and put you in 'the zone'. We'll get a little messy, and I'll show you techniques for layering texture, colour, and a variety of different mediums and media. If you love 'art' and crave creating but have been hesitant to try because you think you can't do it - this class is for you!
