Letâ€™s pull back the curtain to see what happens backstage. In this 2-day workshop we will discuss and discover the process of creating art and how your visual journal can play a supporting role. You will create a 6â€ x 8â€ assemblage while working simultaneously in your journal with sketches, notes, dashes of paint, and remnants from your piece. Visual journals can take on many forms. ÂUse it to flesh out ideas, document process, and collect evidence as you work on a piece, so it is not only a valuable resource but becomes a tool that may inform future work. The connection between your journal and your piece of art is like getting to see the deleted scenes, or extra footage from a movie. Your assemblage may steal the spotlight, but your journal is the real star.
