Last Thursday, with the help of art journaling expert, Kristina, we had a library program where we created art journals out of old hardcover books. A grand time was had by all and it is definitely something we want to do again. Check out the awesome pictures in this post. Our theme was “Critic.” We wrote something in our journals that a critic has told us we can not do, or something we have told ourselves we can not do. We covered up our “Critic” in paint and created a collage of what we Can do!
Kristina provided some great online resources and free workshops for art journaling:
And, of course,@ YOUR LIBRARY
PPLD.ORG (OR YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY’S WEBSITE)
USE SEARCH TERMS ART JOURNALING; ART JOURNALS, OR ALTERED BOOKS
One new book we have that is a lot of fun and includes a DVD is:
The Art Journal Workshop: Break Through, Explore, and Make it Your Own,
by Bunkers, Traci.
This sounds like a fabulous program. And I’m so tickled pink to have been able to inspire you guys!
