Art Journaling

Journaling is an art diary where observations, ideas, emotions, passions, curiosities, interests, poetry, and beautiful works of art are combined in an amazing visual sketch book. In this class, we will create a daily art journal that records words and sketches using mixed media and collages. Many artists are known for their art journaling, especially master artist Leonardo da Vinci. See http://artjournaling.tumblr.com/
