What is an art journal anyway?

September 23, 2015

According to the dictionary, a journal is a personal record of occurrences, experiences, and reflections kept on a regular basis. It can be said then, that an art journal is somewhere between a written journal and a sketchbook, but really it can be whatever you want it to be.

The thing that I love the most about seeing other people’s art journals (even though by their very nature, art journals are designed not to be seen by anyone) is that each one is so individual, and beautiful in their own right. They reflect the personality of their creators, and evoke feelings and emotions.

Here are some examples of some of my favourite journals I’ve come across online.

Check out my Pinterest board for more of my favourite journals and artists books and of course, if you fancy giving it a try, there are still a few places for my art journaling course this Saturday.
