Art Journal It Out with Brittany Soucy
In this course we will be art journaling. I will be using a plethora of art supplies and explain how I use these supplies while discussing composition and mixed media techniques.
I will demonstrate some portraiture and will teach you different ways I approach this in my art
journal. We will work on several spreads so you can try different styles and find new ways of growing your art skills.
We will go into each spread by layering handwriting with paint and gesso. We will build upon those layers with mixed media and adhering paper and ephemera. Then we will add a focal point and find a way to express a thought or feeling through your journaling. You will learn new
skills while creating something you love.
Try whatever you want – this is for YOU! Make a mess, paint or cover up what you don’t like.
When you’re stuck, art journaling sets you free. You open yourself up
and let your frustrations go. You gift yourself the joy of experimentation. You discover that you have something to say and you open your heart.
