Visual Journaling and the Body (and Mixed Media)
Students will investigate the relationships between the artist, journals, narratives, and the human body. Using a wide range of body-related materials, we’ll explore layering, poetry, photo-realism, and the unique features that book structures can add to your artwork. How does the daily interface with a journal change the art process, inform the artwork, and develop a greater meaning? When writing in a personal diary doesn’t resonate with you, perhaps going with a visual expression will. Journaling alongside a medical struggle, the birth of a child, documenting the family’s growth at a reunion, and even as a memorial or tribute to someone special – the personal, reflective nature of the journal can really expand one’s life.
