Drawing on 40 years of experience in keeping an artist's journal, Cathy Johnson knows that an artist's creative life can benefit from written and visual explanations and experiments. While most books deal with either keeping a sketchbook or creating an art journal, Artist's Journal Workshop: Creating Your Life in Words and Pictures addresses both. It also delves into how to create a space for personal and artistic exploration.
Over the course of the book, readers benefit from the tips, techniques, and exercises that make an artist's journal uniquely hers or his own. Also covered are topics that include how to use a journal to celebrate any occasion or milestone, how to work through a problem or creative block, how to plan future works, and how to sketch from life, in addition to ways to experiment with new materials or techniques.
