The Black and White Journal, A minimal approach to artful journaling

I’m jazzed to announce I’ll be a guest teacher in a new online course:  

The Black & White Journal: A Minimal Approach to Artful Journaling,  hosted by the lovely and talented Kiala Givehand.   Since this is a Kiala offering, you also get a book-making lesson as well as the many ways to use just black and white in your art journals.

The first session starts on July 10. Registration just opened yesterday, and Kiala Givehand, the curator of this class, already has a couple of lessons waiting for you where she teaches you how to make a handmade journal to use during the course and gives you ideas for starting simply.

This class is about learning to journal with intention but in a simple, minimalistic way. It’s about learning to create with basic materials. Kiala has brought together 7 teachers from all walks of life to share their love of art, art journaling, and simple approaches to journaling in order to start (or reconnect to) a simple creative practice. It’s going to be an amazing course perfect for Zentangle lovers.

My class is slated to be on the topic of  “Woven, Tangled and Knotted Journaling”   You can find some sneak peeks on my Instagram page throughout the month.

And, to top it off, there will be live virtual sessions that you can attend online during the facilitated portion of the class from July 10-24  (they’ll also be recorded after if you miss them). You get to be in conversation with the teachers and other students. (I am teaching one of the LIVE sessions.)  It’s going to be a blast. I sure hope to see you there. ​
CLICK HERE​ to join and register.   The early bird rate is good till the end of this month!  And the course will be open for a year after to take self-study.
