All abilities are welcome to come along to this short course, whether you want to try something new or build on existing skills. Over four weeks, Kat will guide and support you to express yourself using exciting creative prompts and a range of acrylic painting and collage techniques.

Art journaling is creating just for fun and there are no rules! It’s suitable for everyone and benefits include helping to process thoughts, relax, practice self-care, connect with others, embrace mistakes, experiment and try things out.

Tutor: Kat Ward

Kat Ward is an artist and educator from The New Forest. She has a BA (Hons) Degree in Fine Art, worked as a Visiting Tutor at The Arts University Bournemouth and delivered interactive tours and workshops for Southampton Arts and Heritage.

Her first photographs were taken with disposable 35mm film cameras and she still has a soft spot for their aesthetic, often incorporating light leaks, multiple exposures and other imperfections into her work. She’s hugely inspired by nature and enjoys combining her love of the outdoors with collage, printmaking and alternative photographic processes such as anthotype, cyanotype and lumen printing.

Currently, Kat teaches creative arts to adults and children at a range of venues, including Hampshire Libraries, while also working as a Forest School practitioner. A patient and supportive teacher, Kat is passionate about helping others embrace their creativity while benefiting health and wellbeing!
