In the times of Covid, we’re all looking for connections. How about a starting a shared journal? Missing a grandchild? Send questions back and forth. Wanting to start a new alternate way of communicating with the young adult in your life? Might it be time to capture feelings with an aging parent before stories and memories start to fade? Exploring a new relationship? Share your thoughts with writing.
This virtual class is open to adults and children all ages, from 10 to 80. The class will initiate a new and exciting way to keep in touch through a shared journal that offers a way to gain insights about yourselves as you create a treasured heirloom.
The ArtSchool is making an effort to reduce the materials required for online classes where possible. For this class, students should have writing tools including pen and paper, or journal.
