The L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library’s Dabble Box makerspace is excited to announce its first “Dabbler in Residence,” art journalist Susan Walsh. All are invited to visit the Dabble Box this March during “in-studio” hours to watch her work and to learn about art journaling. She will also be sharing her knowledge and talent at three hands-on sessions of her workshop “Start with Art.”
In 2012, Walsh discovered the world of visual journaling through Pinterest and YouTube. Intrigued by the practice, she began her first art journal in April of 2013 using supplies on hand and recycled items.
“My art time feeds my soul, grounds my worries, and clears my head,” says Walsh. “Art journaling encourages life reflection and increases self-awareness. As you journal, you create an excellent chronicle of your life, helping to define goals and progress as well as increasing self-perception and encouraging a healthy expression of hopes and dreams.”
The Dabbler in Residence program is supported by the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library Endowment Fund. The application period for the August 2020 residency will begin in March. More information and the application form will be available at www.ecpubliclibrary.info/dabblerinresidence.
