Journal Your Story, 3-week series (virtual)

Journal Your Story is a 3- week virtual series to learn how, and why, to start journaling.

Week one, 8/5/20: What is Journaling? – We will focus on tips and tricks to start journaling, the benefits of investing time into the process, and the types of journaling to consider.

Week two, 8/12/20: Bullet & Dot Journaling – We will focus on the specific types of journaling known as Bullet & Dot Journaling, using CreativeBug and books available in the library to get us started. A bullet journal is a cross between a planner, to-do list, and a diary. We’ll emphasize bullet & dot and art journaling specifically.

Week three, 8/19/20: Art Journaling – You don’t have to be an artist to create amazing art journals! Art journaling is a great way to capture inspiration, document your life, and get emotions on paper. This type of journaling has no rules, and lots of room to experiment.

Plan to join us in our Virtual Programming Room and attend all three sessions, if your schedule allows. A general kit with journaling supplies will be available at 11am to Grab-and-Go on Saturday, August 1st. First come, first serve, while supplies last. You do not need this kit to participate in the series - please gather a notebook or paper and pens, markers, or any other writing utensil.

**Special kit available: Participants attending both of the first two sessions will receive an art journaling kit (supplies limited) to be picked up prior to the final week to use during the Art Journaling session. Details will be provided during the upcoming sessions.

Get ready to be inspired!

To have available to use during the session:

  • A notebook, journal, or planner (art journaling book is part of the final session’s separate kit – while supplies last)
  • Pens, pencils, markers, and any other writing utensils
  • The art journaling kit will contain some samples of things you can use – use those to inspire you to gather supplies before the art journaling session.

Registration required. When you register, you are registering for all three sessions. Attend the first two and receive a special Art Journaling Grab-and-Go kit. Ages 18+ only.
