Creative Journaling with Mary Lou Gerber

Learn How to Express Yourself creatively through various journal techniques.

Each week Mary Lou Gerber will guide you with a new creative process, such as use of different types mediums (watercolors, markers, or colored pencils, and portable utensils), hand lettering, layout, various sources of inspiration, use of color, uses for creative journals and their various formats, and finding your muse.  You will be encouraged to work on your own at home, but there will be no requirements for the class.  There is no pre-requisite for the class.  All levels of abilities are welcome and encouraged to share.  Creative journaling is not the same as writing a diary, but can also be used if you are interested in writing a diary and enhancing it for your own satisfaction.  This is not a creative writing class.  You are encouraged to explore things, places, interests, magazines, books, quotes, and other stimulus that may help you create and find joy in the process of discovery.  If you have never done anything like this before, but are curious, call us at 533-4542 with any questions you might have about the class and what you might expect to gain from it.  Mary Lou is capable of helping the first time journaler or the more advanced explorer.
