The artist’s journal is not only a great place to start a library of personal marks, doodles and ideas, but it can also be a forum to experiment and develop ideas for projects that ultimately move beyond the journal page. Melanie Testa will encourage you to experiment and play in your journal to try out new directions for creating works of art, while also learning step-by-step techniques for working in a variety of media. Your art journal becomes the starting point for bigger projects, with each chapter featuring jumping-off points to show the you how to progress from the journal to an actual project.
