Thirty minutes of Art Journaling

Art journaling is a great way to let your create thoughts flow out into a page using art materials. During this pandemic an art journal can help to express your feelings, uncertainties and hope. Art skill and talent is not needed, simple supplies and trusting the process is all you need.

Supplies needed:

  • Art journal
  • Watercolor paints
  • Various sizes of brushes
  • Color pencils
  • Acrylic markers-optional

Start by brushing watercolors onto the paper. Any shape and line. Put a variety of colors and shaped into this first step.

Let it dry. Then take color pencils and start coloring in areas to give it a “pop.” Add acrylic markers to it for extra detail and depth. Layer the details. Just let yourself flow with it and not expect a specific painting at the end. Just have fun.

Happy journalling
