15 students,2 teachers and 4 large tables filled the main gallery of Artful Dimensions with creative and colorful construction and learning.
This beautiful cover is ready for some time on the floor to dry.
Watching the ink drip along the crumpled paper.
After lunch we constructed the journals and discussed the many options for journaling and use of the books.
The girls did a fabulous job with their journals, don't you think? They are well on their way to exploring all of the wonderful possibilities that the routine of Journaling can add to their creative lives.
At 3pm the girls had to be on the bus and ready for their trek back to Dominion High . We could have gone on for at least several more hours and reconvened the next day for more!!! Plans are in the works for me to travel up to northern VA , during the spring semester, to spend some more creative time with this wonderful class!!
*****The idea to create these journals from cereal boxes came from artist Jennibellie and her fabulous tutorials!! She has some amazing ideas and you can see her tutorial for this basic idea here. I started with her idea and have made the technique my own.*******
