Hi, everyone!  I'm strongly interested in starting a local SFV-based art journaling group...read on, if interested:

I'm passionate about art journaling and mixed media art, but have yet to find and develop a network of art enthusiasts to meet up with regularly in the SFV, where I am based.  I have a background in studio art and digital media, but art journaling and mixed media art are where it's at for me -- they're incredibly therapeutic and fun and necessary for me to explore as an artist.  I've attended art journaling workshops and retreats, but crave a local connection to artists (I know you're out there!) in my community.

The purpose of this group is to promote creative freedom and joy in the art making and art journaling process.  Art journaling is the creative use of any or all of the following: painting, drawing, collage, photography, etc. in the form of an altered book, journal, sketchbook, etc.  (Google "art journaling" or "Teesha Moore" for artists and examples and more info if you're curious.)  *No previous art experience necessary!*  I aim to facilitate a supportive and relaxing environment for the exchange of artistic ideas and play.

I invite art enthusiasts, artists, art journalers to join -- however old or young you are, whatever your skill level -- come one, and come all!  If you're new to art journaling or if you've been doing it for years, any and all are welcome!

I'm interested. I've never done any art journaling, but I want to branch out into new things Smiley

Hey, glitter_hamster!  Thanks for your reply.  I'm posting the invite in a few other places, to see if there are any more takers.  I'll reply back with an update within a day or two, or sooner, depending on how soon I here back.  In the meantime, I will PM you about possible meeting locations in the Valley and my availability for meeting up.  Smiley
