Creative Journal, Visual Chronicle, Visual Journal, Sketchbook, Scrapbook, Ideas Notebook, Visual Diary....whatever you call it, it's really just a book where you can gather your thoughts and hopefully kick-start a creative process. No previous art-experience necessary.
Unfortunately due to other commitments I am not available to run a series of classes on journalling at the moment. However, I can come to your group's venue for occasional ad-hoc classes. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
