This workshop is a three-day deep dive into art journaling techniques. Art journaling is a medium for exploring your creativity. You don’t have to consider yourself “artistic” or even “good” at art to benefit from art journaling. Everyone has a creative side that needs nurturing, and this workshop offers the opportunity to experiment and try new things. * Please bring your own journal. It can be any size (8×12, 7×10, 5.5×8.5, are all great options). Journals should be “mixed media” paper (not a drawing or sketching notebook). They can be purchased at The Art Box in Crozet, Michaels, or Walmart. All other materials are included. *

Catherine Konvalinka is from Virginia, went to highschool and college in Washington, D.C. and has lived in Charlottesville since 2017. She has been passionate about creative self-expression from a young age. She has developed her skills through many courses and workshops offered at Edmund Burke School, The Art League of Alexandria, and The Smithsonian. Catherine interned at The National Gallery of Art and taught art classes to elementary students. She received a B.A. in Elementary Education from American University and a Masters of Education from The University of Virginia. She is certified to teach Pre-K through 12th grade.
