Artful Journaling: Interview with Julie Balzer

Julie Fei-Fan ese Balzer answered these questions on her bblog


What is Art Journal Every Day?

A: Art Journal Every Day is weekly feature on this blog.  It appears every Friday.  The Art Journal Every Day (AJED) posts are always art journal focused, though not necessarily focused on daily art journaling.

Q: What does the title "Art Journal Every Day" mean?

A: I do my best to art journal every day.  I encourage other people to do so -- just for ten minutes a day.  The point is to be creative and steal a little bit of time just-for-you every single day.




Clark's Field Guide

Q: What supplies do I need to get started?

A: You don't "need" anything.  A notebook, a pen, and something to color with is a great beginning.

Math & Collage:

Study ratios and fractions by creating a collage in the journal. Provide students with different colors of tissue paper. Have them rip it in various sizes based upon the ratio of the paper. ( rip me a .75 of the ratio of the paper and then glue down.)

Writing & Water Color

Have students create a page in their journal divided by thirds-one with paint color, the second with color and a bit of water and the third with mostly water and small amount of paint. On the next page have them write about the experience could use, first, next, then, and last) and what the colors remind them of and descriptive imagery words for each colum

On a nature walk have students choose leaves or various other items from their natural habitat Then dip them in paint and press into the journal Then write about what they noticed or describe what each item is so they can research them later.
