What you will learn

In this lesson I want to talk about beauty and about growing as an artist. I use the painting called ‘The Birth of Venus’ by Botticelli as a theme and metaphor in my lesson.

We are not going to copy the painting, let that please be clear. Obviously I am not Botticelli ;-) and unfortunately I do not know how to paint like him.

After this workshop “The Birth of an Artist” my hope for you is that you will:

  • appreciate your own art more.
  • know why aesthetics is so important for your art journaling
  • know the secret how to always have enough inspiration
  • know how to turn this inspiration into beautiful art journal pages
  • learn how to develop your own artistic vision on art journaling, which will allow you to truly grow as an artist and help you get that unique style that you want.


Becoming an artist is a journey. With this lesson I merely want to contribute to your journey. See it as a gentle push in your back.

You have probably been playing around with art supplies for quite a while now. Maybe you consider yourself an art journaling beginner, but maybe, over the years you became an advanced art journaler. This lesson makes you think about where you stand as an artist.
