This class will focus on nurturing each student’s particular voice and vision through journaling. Many artists use journals to generate their more formal artwork. Others may use journals as a part of a more personal journey. LaVilla-Havelin will offer a variety of approaches to journaling, providing examples and exercises. Visitors to the class may include writers and visual artists willing to share their journals and their way of working, creating and observing. Each student will receive a journal which will be theirs to keep. The class will also contribute to a collaborative/shared/ responsive open journal which will be entered as a part of the 1000 Journals Project.
