Visual Journaling

Dates
Display dates: 
February - April 2019

Whether you're a regular visual journaler or just getting started, these two-hour open studios provide opportunity to draw, doodle, cut, collage, paint, paste, and write reflectively in a relaxed and inspiring group setting. There are no rules in a visual journal--it's a playful and deeply personal practice that can relieve stress and heighten awareness. Let this group setting motivate you to keep up with your visual journaling practice, share ideas, techniques, and creativity with fellow travelers on the visual journaling journey.

Supplies such as paints, brushes, pens, glue, gesso, scissors, stamps, ink pads, and some collage papers are provided. Please feel free to bring your own mixed media or watercolor journal and your own ephemera to put into your visual journal. The facilitator will provide writing and drawing prompts for those who want them, and also provide lots of resources.

About the facilitator

Martha McCaughey, teaches in sociology and first year seminar at Appalachian State, holds a Graduate Certificate in Expressive Arts, and is passionate about the power of visual journaling for self-expression, self-reflection, healing, and growth.
