Art Journaling can have an amazing, positive impact on your life as an artist or be used to put your thoughts down in a creative way.
It’s a space where you can let loose and explore with colors, shapes, lines, new techniques and writing all at once. Some journals are more free-form and expressive, others are more of a “finished” art product.
What is this one thing you need to know about art journaling? You need to know there are NO RULES! It's for ALL levels. Your art journal is a place for creative expression and it's about enjoying the process.
Art Journaling is an easy way to help you connect with your inner artist and awaken your creative gifts! Join us for one of the most forgiving ways to make art!

about the Guest Instructor
I’ve always loved--being creative! As a youngster I loved to draw, create with clay, weave macramé, and take photographs that I would print and frame. As I got older, my creative interests expanded to include developing nutritious cooking recipes. In 2014, I took all the photographs for, wrote the recipes and designed the cover and inside layout of my published, full-color cookbook, “Healthy Food gets Fabulous.” I also began to design and create jewelry in silver and bronze.
But I wanted more! And that’s when I found Art on 30th. At first, I tried a few “Paint Nights” but when I began taking Kate’s Intro to Abstract Acrylics class, I was hooked on painting! I have now been painting for about five years, continue to take various art classes and have my art on display in Studio 8. Come visit me!
Of all the styles of art, I really love the concept of art journaling. It’s a great way to put down your artistic thoughts, practice for larger paintings, or just have fun--being creative!
