From the journal...

The Artist & the Journal - Part 3

< Back to Classroom     -     Next lesson >


Pages of inspiration


Welcome to the third part of the class! We're going to take the best from our art journaling practice and our art journal pages, to inspire our whole art making process!

Before we dive into the painting project itself, I wanted to give you a quick overview of ways that you can use your art journal to find inspiration for your paintings. Then you'll see how I use these, and more, in the final lesson of the class.

Are you ready? Let's fly!

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
— Scott Adams

Here are a few close-ups from some of my pages that I find interesting. All of these could be used as inspiration for paintings!


Share your magic!

Share the inspiration you find with the group! Please post your favorite cropped-up images from your pages and tell us what you love about them, and how you could imagine turning them into paintings!

You can also share your photos related to the class on Instagram with the hashtag #artistjournalclass 

NB: for this 3rd part of the class we also use the hashtag #frompagetocanvas

Have fun and get ready to paint!
