Using the spring and summer seasons as a starting point, learn how to commit your life’s memories to book form though engaging prompts and practical tips. Art journaling allows you to document your feelings and life events in a meaningful and creative format through a calming, personally expressive practice. Fuse words with imagery though drawing, watercolor pencil, and more to organize your thoughts and preserve your experiences. No drawing experience is necessary.
