An art journal is a kind of a diary in which you combine art and words to express yourself. There is no right or wrong. It's all about self-expression. Artists have always kept notebooks in which they sketched, practiced, experimented, and recorded themselves.  Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Leonardo Da Vinci were prolific sketchbook keepers; therefore, you are in good company! Each session will begin with a series of writing and artistic prompts and ideas sure to inspire you and to help bring out your inner creative genius!
