Event description

Description

Learn how to document your life, surroundings, travels and adventures while capturing the moment with all your senses in this 3-week Creative Journaling workshop taught by professional artist Daina Deblette. Using simple elements and materials, this workshop will inspire you to capture the simple beauty surrounding you in every day life.

No prior creative experience is necessary.

Set in the former radio station, you'll feel instantly relaxed in this brightly transformed, well-ventilated, open "beach house" space, where we will explore a full spectrum of materials and techniques including basic observational drawing, pen, and ink washes and watercolours. Learn how to create value, contrast and texture using pen and paint, how to draw from life or a photo, and the option to design your own lettering for use in your journal. On the last day of class, weather permitting, we will do a field trip in to nature where we will document our own individual experiences and perspectives.

It's a good idea to bring photos (of places you've traveled to or places you cherish) or objects that you cherish to reference while we explore how to document these visually together.

We will discuss interesting subjects and how to approach them from a creative standpoint, as well as gain inspiration from other creative journaling artists.

Never again feel embarrassed at the thought of someone reading your journal. You might even find yourself sharing it with friends and family, inspiring them to begin their own!
