Resources from the presentation “Investigation and Creativity with Process Journals”
Created by @GrundlerArt & @therealartsyamy
My former high school teaching partner (she taught Art II and I taught Art I) and friend Amy Semifero (@therealartsyamy) of almost twenty years introduced me to journaling back in 2002. She used it as a life management tool and I was fascinated. When I started journaling it was by sketching everyday life, then during a personal spiritual journey my journaling really took off..... I was sold. Back then we infused sketchbooks in our art classrooms and I recently shared a blog on my curricular evolution from sketchbook to process journals, journaling is more meaningful and personal to students. She and I now regularly present on process journals around Texas, most recently at the Texas Art Education Assoc. Conference and we will also be presenting at NAEA in March. We are often asked about our go-to resources, materials and who to follow, so we sat down and created an initial list to share and here it is.............
