    I am an artist, this is my ideas journal with Ester Kiely
    Every one of us is creative. We each have a unique view of the world around us. Our memories, thoughts, feelings and reactions provide us with lots of inspiration for making artwork.

    An artist is always looking, observing and keeping notes. This information allows the artist to create a personal response to the world around them.

    In this workshop each participant will start with a blank notebook.

    With a few simple techniques the notebook will be personalised with colour, mark-making, collage and embellishments.
