Art Journaling Workshop

Caitlin Sherwood, artist, gave two workshops at the Sandy Spring Museum on Art Journaling, one to a mixed age group and one to an older group. Her process is to first write a journal entry and then to paint the page, often painting over the writing. The writing gets her started and then she uses many different kinds of paint, markers, collage, markers, glitter, to fashion an art journal entry that seems real to her for that day. She tries to do at least one page a day.

She gave the students several pages to work on and provided paints, glue, old magazines and old books from thrift stores from which to cut pictures for collages.

Students, young and old, commented that they liked the freedom and would try to contine with art journaling at home.
