Spring Visual Accordion Journal

Sunday it registered 100 degrees in the San Fernando Valley where I taught my workshop at - Many Paths Bookstore - despite the heat eight fabulous people showed up to create amazing books - my design was an accordion journal with two hard covers that tied with a wrapped ribbon - at the beginning of the workshop I led the group in a meditation exercise to find the words and/or visuals that would lead them to the theme of their journal - here are the results - Thank you Doug, Angelique, Terrill, Carole, Estrid, Tina, Debbie, and Karen - Y'all made my day!

Angelique - new to LA - a Brooklyn transplant...

And her friend - the fabulous Doug...

My friend Karen - we met at Art Unraveled 2007 ...

Debbie - taking a break's about the journey...

Estrid - the fastest journal maker in the west!

Debbie and Tina ...

Carole and Terrill...Terrill is another friend that I met at Art Unraveled 2007 and is joining me at AU 2008 - can't wait!

The completed books - aren't they beautiful?

Spring Visual Journal Workshop

If you're in the LA area on Sunday come spend the afternoon with us - guaranteed to be fun and insightful! Here's the announcement - see you there - and watch for a new series of classes to be taught at another location in June - I will continue to teach a monthly class at the bookstore as well -


Join REVA SOLOMON (writer, artist, Creative Life Coach) in creating a Visual Journal that focuses on a specific goal or project. Through discussion, coaching and a visual meditation exercise, each participant will identify a project, and then create a small journal with photos, pictures from magazines and other mementos to help motivate you to take steps to complete your project or selected goal.

No prior art or writing experience required. Please bring your own scissors (if you have them), pictures from magazines, photos (if you want to use them again make photocopies to use in your book), and any other personal items you might want to add to your book. All other materials provided. According to past workshop participants, this workshop is fun and enlightening. Come see for yourself… Give yourself a gift of creativity and play!
