ART JOURNALING Classes for Women

What is art journaling?


It's expressing yourself visually with images and words using collage, paint, color. It's not just about making something "pretty" or "perfect". Here you can not only make mistakes -- they're welcome!

I started art journaling over 10 years ago when my son was born. I couldn't travel as a working actor, but I still {desperately} needed a creative outlet. I found art journaling to be a therapeutic, affordable, and portable way to express myself.

I've been teaching in schools, shops, and out of my home studio for years. Children and adults love having the freedom to play. Art journaling is about the process, not the outcome. We're not reinventing the wheel. We're simply making.

You don't need experience.

You don't have to spend a lot of money.

You can take it with you anywhere. 

You'll get your creative self going again, plus you'll also connect with a caring group of like-minded people!


Back in the day, women gathered around the quilting table to share their lives. Now, most of our connection to others is electronic -- through emails, texts, and social media. We're gathering around a big table, lay down our burdens, and playing with art supplies.

Art Journaling classes were created with deeply connected women who formed a community of strong, brave souls that keep showing up for themselves and each other.

Classes for adult women meet every other Thursday in South Pasadena, California; guided by Emily Cline. 


We are meeting LIVE, starting September 11, meeting every other week. We are socially distanced, masked, sanitized, and limited in our class size. There are two sessions to choose from: mornings from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. or evenings from 7:00–9:00 p.m. Each class is $50/month. Currently both sessions are full.


To be clear: these are not product based classes; they are process. You're not going to leave with a beautiful drawing of a bowl of the countryside or a bowl of fruit. You will, however, walk out relaxed, rejuvenated, and more closely connected to a yourself and an amazing group of strong, supportive women.

The community created here is nonjudgemental and deeply inspiring! These classes are full of healing, feel-good-ness and M&M's.
