Schedule an Art Journaling Session


Art journaling is a method that combines writing with doodling, painting and mark making. It’s a wonderful way to express your emotions. It can also be a technique for combating anxiety and managing stress. This workshop is perfect for teens and adults. Gather your friends and book a session to learn all the benefits of keeping an art journal.

Customer feedback:

"Journaling with Jennifer was a different experience.  It was fun, enlightening, and encouraging.  With her guidance, I leaped into it with arms wide open and surprised myself. I'd have never been able to accomplish what I did on my own.  A single workshop opened up possibilities.  I think I may have found a new adventure."   ––Zee L.
