Journal Friday #57: Tracing and Teaching


Sometimes getting to work in the journal is a simple as tracing something, and this week I focused a little on using a variety of circles to trace. Though I have a variety of store bought stencils and templates, it can be interesting to trace found objects like rolls of tape and paint palettes and found stencils like punchinella. I used water soluble pencil and ink to trace a series of circles on several pages in my big book, and I used watercolor to paint through some of the punchinella.

I didn't have too much time to work in my journal this week, but I did have the opportunity to work with a group of high school students at Roxbury High School in Succasunna, NJ. David and I taught an all-day workshop with about 50 students, and it was great to see their enthusiasm and willingness to dive into the journal.
