This course is designed for artists or art teachers. As an artist, you can learn new junk journal ideas, techniques, and more. Work at your own pace through the 18 lessons included in the online art course.

As an art teacher, you can use these videos weekly in your classes. I teach visual journals in every art class, every Friday students in every class work in their books. I focus on teaching new techniques in my intro-level art classes. My upper-level art students get to choose the content and technique they want to focus on that week. Play my videos at the start of class on Friday, pass out the technique guide, and let students work independently. Give yourself a break and let me teach your art class!

Lesson Packs:

In this art journal online course you get immediate access to 18 weeks of content. Work through the content at your own pace and rewatch videos at any time. Each week work through a lesson pack. The packs include:

  • Instructions, overview of the focus that week
  • 15-30 minute demo video
  • Project guide, with instructions on applying the techniques taught
  • Checklist

This course is designed for artists, homeschool parents, or art teachers. Artists can get an in-depth explanation of techniques and materials. Homeschool parents and teachers, simply play the video for your students, pass out the guides, and let them get to work. Teachers, you sit at your desk, catch up on grading, and let me teach your class.

  1. What is the difference between this course “Visual Journal, Junk Journal Course: Semester of Activities” and “Semester Long Visual Journal Course for Artists, Art Teachers?” Thank you!

    • Hi, Tanya! Thanks for reaching out!

      So sorry for the confusion! They are the same thing, the “Visual Journal, Junk Journal Course: Semester of Activities” is a blog post that gives information about the product and links to the product page in my shop. The “Semester Long Visual Journal Course for Artists, Art Teachers” is the product page in my shop, but you have to click to ThriveCart to purchase. I like to share blog posts about new products that give more in-depth information. What makes it confusing is buyers have to check out through ThriveCart to access the course rather than my website. Other product blog posts link over to my website shop page where they can purchase… with this one it links to the product page which links to ThriveCart making it quite the process!

      I hope that makes sense! I didn’t even think how that could throw people off when they are on my site!
