Learning Art Journaling Online
I’m sold on online courses. These are not college courses, which have their place, but not in my universe right now. I’ve been finding courses on all kinds of things offered by ordinary people with expertise in certain areas. My current passion is art journaling, through a class offered by Kelly Kilmer. You can see examples of her work at her blog.
She charged only $50 for six months worth of prompts, templates and community with other students. The members post photos of their efforts and we all comment on them. Everyone is very supportive–I haven’t seen a snarky comment yet–and I’m making friends across the country and around the world.
The photo to the left is my latest collage. I’m still waiting for that sunshine.
