A new journal page from my class yesterday. Yes, I was teaching but I have decided to do my student's work assignments as a way of continuing to teach myself. The class went really well and I had positive feedback from my 2 wonderful students. Their first journal page assignment, in their brand spanking new journals, was to use the word "begin" on the first page of their journal. There was a lot of discussion about journaling and an ample amount of time to play around with various art supplies before they dove in – facing down the white page. Just begin. It really can be that simple. And so they did - their pages turning out beautiful and original. I had fun playing with this idea as well. We all began. Again.
