Color Journaling


Color journaling can be a fun way to relax and enjoy nature and painting.  There is no pressure to perform and there is no wrong way to paint what you see, because your journal is private.  You can use a color journal session to practice painting or drawing moments in time much like Monet or any of the Impressionists. Color journal classes are offered at the Urban Art Retreat and Studio.  To enroll, simply send me an email when you see it offered. Drawing/painting materials and journal are provided.

Class: $30
Materials: $5
