Visual Journaling the Next Step


Moleskine Journaling Page


This course is for those of you who attended the visual journaling workshop and started your own journey of commemorating your life with picture. This is the next step. A refresher and a build up to what you have learned. So, if you are new here make sure to check visual journaling workshop first.


Day one of Visual Journaling the Next Step:

On day one we are going to go through YOUR sketches and analyze your progress. We will be looking at things like composition, colour and context. Taking it from there we will devise the next step plan. Based on each and everyones work we will tackle each point improving on things that could be done to take your sketches to the next level, concentrating on composition and colour. You will go home with a clear picture of what needs to be done and practiced until out next session.

Day two of Visual Journaling the Next Step:

We will build up on our previous lesson and look at composition in context with annotation. Meaning how to crate a page that is cohesive with both drawings and annotations in accordance to the white space on the page. We will spend some more time on writing prompts and thinking up ways of telling a story. Wether it be with words, how they respond to the image memory and the general layout of the page or the amount of writing needed to elevate the page and the story. Those of you using bigger sketchbooks will have more space to fill and more ways to come up with different layouts.

Day three of Visual Journaling the Next Step:

We will be looking into other ways of adding interest to our pages. Using stickers, collaging bits such as wrapping paper, part of shopping bags. All in relevance to the memory on the page. We will also be looking into other ways of creating pages with interest. Such as, using background colour and pattern, outlined boxes, images crossing the sketchbook spine or stamps and stencils.

Day Four of Visual Journaling the Next Step:

Putting it all together. Using all the additional knowledge and resources covered in pervious days. We will be creating full cohesive two page spreads while taking inspiration from the skills and points we re visited. Taking it forward by curating a detailed plan of skills to practice for the future.
