So, join this class of journal art and create a book (or two!) – a story!

Take some time with a mentor by your side,

Bind and glue and tear and rip to create your own design.

 

Journeying through the garden noting all you see,

Focusing on the treasures that you view for free.

 

Sketching as you wander with pencil, pens, paint, paper and glue,

Learning and creating treasure books that are just for you!
