Michael Bell is an art instructor who advocates developing creative skills through the use of a visual journal.
“Visual journaling is a way to record life’s experiences, feelings, emotional reactions, or one’s own inner voice visually and verbally. Sometimes words alone fail to describe what we feel inside. Visual journaling is a creative way to respond to an internal, very personal situation in traditional sketchbooks, or through non-traditional works of art that include both text and imagery.”
