Visual Journaling as a Creative Tool
with writer and artist
March 15, 09:30-15:00
Visual journaling can be one of the most rewarding forms of expression. And the best part is that you don’t need to be an "artist" or a “writer” to create and keep a visual journal. The goal is rather to tap into the mind’s natural mix of ideas, images and words by bringing together color, texts and pictures. It is about play, experimentation and exploration rather than display.
This workshop will combine creative writing, collage, book art, mind-mapping and drawing in order to get you started on a new way of recording daily thoughts, memories, dreams, goals and even to-do lists. It offers a language for tapping into your inner world, while developing a private art-making process.

Endorsements for teaching:
'The Story Foundations course, taught by Nadia Jacobson and Batnadiv HaKarmi, did exactly what you think it would: it gave me a strong foundation about the actual craft of writing, something I so needed to improve my understanding of how to build a story. Both of these women helped me start thinking like a writer and more importantly thinking of myself as a Writer. I'm so excited to think about where this writing journey will take me.' (B.B.)
'Through Nadia & Batnadiv's nurture, I gained the courage to write, and the insight to understand what I was writing and how best to improve it.' (S.G.)
