The Art and Craft of Journaling

October 14 (Saturday 9:00-4:00)

The Art and Craft of Journaling

Journaling takes many forms: a commonplace book of treasured quotes, sketches of the natural world, a record of travel, a place to give voice to the inner life of mind, heart, self-awareness, and reflection. It can be a place to share a narrative, or spark and sustain a creative life, or simply give thanks. In this workshop, we will go beyond writing to play with letters, color, words, shapes, and images to design and layout pages, crafting a look that is fresh, beautiful, original, and evocative. We will engage in exercises that stimulate our curiosity to wonder and ask and look at things in a new way.

Jeanne Paradise, EdD, SCHC, is a practicing artist, teacher, and retired psychotherapist. She is involved in many forms of the arts: creative dance; fiber arts; and literacy crafts. She teaches workshops in color, lettering, design, and bookmaking. Her paintings and handmade books have been exhibited at the Concord Art Association, the Brooklyn Sketchbook Museum, and the Old Schwamb Mill Gallery.
