What you'll learn in this crafts class:

Do you want to start a new year fresh with improving your habits and achieving your goals, and hey, maybe even transforming your life and making the changes you’ve set out to accomplish so many times but fell back? Do you want to do this while being creative? Then, this is the perfect class for you!

Creative Journaling, also known as Bullet Journaling is the perfect way to organize your life, set goals, keep track of things, and exercise your artistic muscles while doing it. This type of journaling has been a hot trend for a number of years, but now more than ever, in these times of social distancing, restrictions and so much uncertainty, creative journaling is undoubtedly the best and most comforting strategy against stress and anxiety and a powerful tool to help us to gain clarity and control about our lives and confidence in ourselves. 

You will learn how to make a Creative Journal from scratch, design various spreads to help you track and log your activities, habits, and goals. After the class, you will be able to create a personalized diary and planner made from you for you!

In this no experience needed, beginner workshop you will:

  • Learn an introduction to creative journaling, supplies, and terminology used
  • Understand the different ways to set up your creative journal.
  • How to design the beginning part of the journal, including the year at glance calendar, trackers, brain dumps, goals, and personalized extras such activities, books to read, movies to watch, and other fun stuff that is significant to YOU!
  • How to build various tailored extras like a schedule page, mapped out activities, books read over the year, movies watched, and more fun stuff.
  • Get an intro on how to incorporate mixed media art journaling and creative writing into your planner page (This class is the foundation for subsequent classes with more aspects for creative journaling in which we’ll go in depth on these subjects.

Suggested supplies:
  • Scrap paper for practice
  • Empty dot journal (you can use printer paper too if you don’t have one at this point)
  • Assorted pens, pencils, markers
  • Stickers, washi tape, scrapbooking supplies (completely optional but super fun to have)
  • Tape and/or glue

About the Instructor

Hi, I’m Jade and I’m an artist, calligrapher, and educator. It is my deepest belief that we can be happier and more fulfilled when expressing ourselves creatively and I'm intensely passionate about teaching and making art accessible to all. My desire is to share my creative journey: to teach, uplift, and encourage everyone to live their best creative lives. My motto in life is "Make art, feel happy!"


Virtual Class FAQ


What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.


Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!



Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy

Students may cancel any time 48 hours or more before the class to receive a refund. Students canceling less than 48 hours before a class will receive a full credit towards rescheduling or purchasing a different class.

Creative Journaling for the Absolute Beginner
Reviewed by Jeanne C. on 2/12/2021
the class was not what i was expecting & i was disappointed. i was expecting & looking for something more focused on ‘creative’ & ‘artsy’. the zoom link sent in the booking email response was incorrect. the instructor sent an email out to participants with the correct zoom link. luckily a friend of mine was also attending & forwarded me the email as my email address was incorrect and the email was never received. some of the video was out of focus once the meeting began. class was much too focused on writing/faux calligraphy for my needs as i have practiced calligraphy for years. also, i sent an email on tuesday regarding the misleading & unusable discounts that i’d been offered. to date, still no reply. i would appreciate an account credit to use toward another class more in line with my expectations.

The course did not fit the course description. I thought it was about journaling (writing) and it was on making a journal book.

Instructor was unprepared. Class was 8 mins. late starting. Link sent in 2/5 email didn’t work. I was expecting more creative art journaling using images & mixed media & not lettering. Would have appreciated same-day reminder email with a working link. Very disappointed! Would appreciate a refund! Or credit toward another class. thank you. Pam Fontenot [email protected]
