Day 2 of the Art Journaling weekend got off to a great start, the class were really attentive, learning and applying paint effects to their pages. We then got down to colour theory and colour and emotion, this always provokes a lot of thought and a lot of discussion. They were then thrown in the deep end and had to create their very first page. they were given a colour and an emotion and had to go with it. They rose to the challenge beautifully and produced some brill pages. And then of course the tears started, one by one, like dominos they fell. Sounds horrible but it is in fact really cathartic and moving, and I always feel really privileged that people feel safe enough in my studio to let down their defences and begin their journey. A quick boost of sugar always brings the colour back, and a big thankyou to Judes Mum for sending home made scotch tablet. If you have never heard of it, it is heart attack fodder,!!! butter, sugar and condensed milk. Luckily you struggle to eat more than one piece, lol.
