Daily Visual Journal - full course

Daily Visual Journal for self-care and personal expression

  Enroll in Course

Daily Visual Journal is a self-care journal that incorporates images, color, texture, and words to uniquely capture your personal expressions. Using the materials from the supply list, or using what you already have, you can create a visual expression of today.

This workshop gives you techniques to experiment with - your journal is your place of discovery - discovery of yourself and your visual voice.

Each technique is followed by a self reflection prompt for you to think about and write about on the backside of your visual journal. Sometimes while creating a visual journal I have a thought in mind and it informs the artwork, other times I’m just playing with technique and process. This written portion does not need to be completed immediately, sometimes the idea occurs to you much later and a self reflection is obvious. Other times, you may feel no need to respond at all.

Remember, this process is for you and you may have your own routine and ideas to make it work. Great! Use these Daily Visual Journal techniques and ideas as an inspiration for your own work. I would love to see what you create your Daily Visual Journal! Please, share your work and ideas - share your self-care routine and keep creating!

I am an artist and I use art on a daily basis as my own self-care. Using art for self-care is the intentional action of making art to reduce stress or to decrease anxiety, to distract yourself from pain (physical or emotional), and to feel joy. A creative self-care routine is the best habit you can create! Self-care is not selfish or a luxury, it is necessary for us to be our best selves and necessary for us to be able to care for ourselves and our family.
