Art journaling is a visual diary where memories and emotions come alive onto the pages. Through the expressive use of various paint mediums, collage, and imagery, you will create a personal art journal that will uncover your heart’s story. Some materials will be provided.
This program is part of our six week “art sampler” series with Crealdé School of Art. Check the calendar for additional opportunities to grow and nurture your creativity.
This program is presented by Crealdé School of Arts and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
Program notes: All art supplies will be provided, however, students are encouraged to bring along old magazines, poems and personal memorabilia such as photos, letters, artwork. Anything that represents you will inspire your creations!
About the Presenter:
A caring and thoughtful art educator, Patricia Isabella Byron is an abstract painter and poet who was inspired by her years living in Turkey and Iran. She says she was compelled to paint and write about the natural beauty and historical sites, studying at the School of Persian Language & Culture at the University of Tehran, Iran. She continued her studies at Crealdé School of Art through the Fellowship and Studio Artist emerging artist programs. In 2006, she joined the faculty, teaching both adults and youth. Byron actively exhibits her work and teaches workshops at galleries and festivals, including the 2018 Epcot International Festival of the Arts.
Byron is dedicated to the students she teaches at John Bridges Community Center in Apopka and Maxey Community Center in Winter Garden, as part of longtime outreach partnerships with Crealdé, which supports the free after-school program designed to develop creative and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts. Byron has volunteered with ABCs, an arts program for children at The Coalition of The Homeless of Central Florida. She is an active member of VSA Florida, a private not-for-profit organization that provides arts, education, and other cultural opportunities for people with disabilities.
