Art journaling frees your heart and your mind.

Come paint and journal, learn new techniques, and explore the materials. Susie and Alice teach lessons during class on how to use paint, collage, rubber stamps and more; how to loosen up; and how to dig deep into your heart and journal what really is percolating inside you.

Process is the emphasis, not product.

Focus on what feels good to you, not what someone else expects from you.

The art journal, while artistic, is not about creating art, but about personal story, emotions, and process. Using color, texture, line, pattern, marks, collage, images, layers, and words, it is a powerful and joyful tool for uncovering your heart's story, working through what troubles you, and just plain old playful expression.

To reserve your spot in a class:

Weekly art journaling studio classes are managed through Meetup.com. There's no fee to join Meetup but it costs $10 to reserve your spot in a class. Classes often fill up about 4 days ahead, so it's a good idea to plan ahead!

There’s something magical about Susie’s studio. The amazing array of art supplies out on the counters, people working with so much focus, the soothing music in the background. Can I say that one of the things I love best about it is that I don’t have to clear a space in my house to work on my journal? I love coming to Unfold Studio to do my art journaling!
