If you have been wanting to learn more about how to journal,  this class will help you get started.  You will start from the very beginning by learning how to create a journal that can be used for all types of media.   You will be exposed to a multitude of tips and techniques to create many of your own amazing collage/mixed media art journals. 
The journal you create in this first class will become your canvas to paint, draw,glue and create works of art throughout the first few classes.  You will be given lots of information about different mediums and brands so you can make informed choices what you'd like to add to your art supply.  
We will begin to explore color and discuss things to do to produce a pleasing page.  You will uncover ways to make the most out of your color palette and learn to create simple, but beautiful backgrounds that can make a strong visual statements.
