Art Journaling for Self-Care

by Amanda Rach Lee


Today, many of us are used to documenting our thoughts and feelings on social media. But what if, instead of writing for an audience, we wrote down our thoughts only for our own sake?

Amanda Rach Lee is an artist whose YouTube channel is full of inspirational and creative content. In this class, the digital creator gives you an opportunity to use all those bits of interesting and colorful stationery lying around, while recording your thoughts and day-to-day events - whether you think they're noteworthy or not.

A healthy way to work through negative feelings, art journaling is perfect for creative people who want to feel the benefits of journaling but struggle to sit and write. Art Journaling for Self Care teaches us to express ourselves in a way that is both therapeutic and aesthetically pleasing.

Allow yourself to just create without the pressure of it needing to result in anything large or perfect or good. What's in your head is good enough.
