Art Journaling

During one of my classes I created this page.  The purpose of the class (Relax and Art Journal) was to introduce my students to the products that are often used in art journaling. Many of my students where new to the art journaling movement, and where afraid of doing the wrong thing. They felt that their art was not good enough. So I told them that ” The artist is their own worst critic”. Meaning we are all to harsh on ourselves about the art that we make. Everyone makes mistakes, but we learn form them. As artist we have to overcome our fears of not being perfect. If we where all perfect there would be no interesting art… Art would all be structured and plane. SO don’t be afraid to add color, layers, or add or take away form something you like thats already there.

Make happy mistakes!  Mistakes make art interesting!
