Join us as we fill our hearts and souls with images and text from daily life. We will write from images that are personal to you and then draw from our writings to create journal entries that look like finished work, capturing moments of time. Easy drawing techniques and doodling with spots of watercolor will merge with free writing and luminous words to create word art on every page.

Wednesdays, December 4 - 18 | 10 am - 12:30 pm | $145 - a $40 art supply fee is included and is not refundable if you cancel less than 48 hours in advance of the first class | REGISTER HERE
