Watercolor & Journaling

 with Jean Warren

The practice of keeping a watercolor journal helps to nurture our creative spirit, and keeps the wildness alive inside us! Come join us as we combine words with our sketches and paintings. This is where we do our thinking and exploring. We’ll play with the paint and then write about it. Create a Haiku and then illustrate it. Word salads and word whittling, painting our feelings and the abstract!
