I really enjoyed reading this article and wanted to share it. Embrace your ugly pages! Be willing to do your art badly…look at it as a study…or a warm up exercise. Practice, Practice, Practice!!! http://beautifullife365.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Make-Ugly-Art-Beautiful-Life-365.jpg
My friend Carol and I taught an Art Journaling class this week at Finger Lakes Art in Auburn, NY. What a great bunch of creative students. We used one of Traci Bunkers Self-Care exercise prompts titled Nurture List. The idea here is to, on the left page write a letter to yourself about why you deserve to be nurtured, and how important it is to love yourself. Then on the right page make a list of the ways you can nurture yourself. We also shared some tips on the different types of journals, styles of journaling and how to use a focal point. We are planning on doing more of these classes in the Fall. Hope you can join us!
I WILL BE EXHIBITING THESE IN NOVEMBER AT THE ARTWORKS GALLERY IN SENECA FALLS, NEW YORK STAY TUNED!
We spent the day helping Gordy & Melissa sell his I heart the Finger Lakes T-Shirts on this Beautiful fall day.
