24 hour Visual Journal Workshop March 2019 meeting
March 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pmFREE
This month we have a workshop with Rachel Simmons on the 24-hour Visual Journal.
We will meet in Rachel Simmons’ studio/classroom at Rollins College in the Art Building just next door to the Cornell Art Museum (1000 Holt Avenue-2765, Winter Park, FL 32789) at 6pm (new meeting time).
A visual journal is a mixed media fusion of writing and art–a unique pathway to developing a sustainable habit of self-reflection. A 24-hour visual journal is a snapshot of a moment in our lives, an opportunity to gather the clutter around us and synthesize these mundane materials into a special time capsule documenting this particular moment. To prepare for this 24-hour visual journal workshop, gather up whatever paper-based material is in reach– receipts from your wallet, take-out menus on your dining room table, doodles in your meeting notebook–anything that seems recent and somewhat inconsequential. Magazine clippings or printed screen shots of texts are rich materials, too. Take a look at this pile of stuff, take a deep breath, and then write for 15 minutes without pausing.
Allow the thoughts bouncing around in your head to come spilling out onto the paper or screen. Bring a paper copy of this writing and the materials you gathered to the workshop. This is the raw material for your 24-hour journal.
