Art and Soul: Self-Discovery

My Saturday class, The Poetic Eye, actually started with a three-hour session on Friday night. It was great getting a jump start on all that L.K. Ludwig had planned for us. The class involved making a hand-made journal with a focus on self-portraits and poetry. We made lots of background pages and learned several techniques for adding photos and imagery.

Things I learned: How to cut a stencil, how to use nitric acid on gold mesh.

PS LK has written several art books, but I highly recommend one of my favorites on visual journaling, True Vision: Authentic Art Journaling. You can bet I had LK sign my copy!
