What is art journaling?

According to Dina Wakly; "Simply put, an art journal is a journal in which you combine art and words to express yourself. That’s it. It’s not complex, and there really aren’t any rules for art journaling. It’s all about self-expression."

What will I be doing in an art journaling group?

Each group will consist of the following components:

-A check in with your fellow group members

-An exploration of a different concept within the book each week

-Engagement in a creative exercise

-Processing of the exercise and your experience with other group members
