We have all heard about the benefits of journaling - jotting down our thoughts first thing in the morning, making lists, creating affirmations and explorations of gratitude. Journaling can help us calm down, take stock and look to the future.
But the above mostly concentrates on the written word, keeping a visual journal can be equally powerful and immensely satisfying. Time can stop still when you are painting or drawing, there is no such thing as 'painter's block.' To get started you just make a mark on the paper. You can even start with your eyes closed!
Using watercolour, pen, pencil and vivid inks we will start your visual diary, concentrating on the area of 'observation.'
Taking natural organic forms as a starting point we will take baby steps with exercises to help you discover your inner artist and teach you some basic techniques.
