Creativebug Art Afternoon

Saturday, June 3, 2023

2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

The Creativebug featured class for June is Art Journaling. Art journaling is an artistic way of documenting your life within the pages of a journal - but instead of using words alone, you'll be using pens, paint and collage to express yourself and record moments from your life. Since our Summer Reading theme is "Find Your Voice" this is an excellent exercise to get you thinking about books that explore that topic.

We will do some exercises that focus on collage elements that can be found in every day life and creative ways to incorporate them into artwork. There will be tips on how to compose several design elements on a page so that they are balanced, and develop your own style of hand lettering. Bringing all of these techniques together will help you develop your very own personal style.

Registration required - sign up at the Reference desk or call 413-259-3096
