Join Artist and Golden Artist Educator Micah Goguen as we explore evocative, multi-media applications in a fresh and inventive way. Blast through blocks and charge fearlessly through new compositions, all while learning layer applications. This class is experimental, offering guidance and allowing you to see art journaling in a new light. We will explore a different composition and media each week that you can later re-envision into larger works if desired.

Art Journaling

  • An Art Journaling notebook or Watercolor journal. Paper should be at least 140 lb. or should be a Mixed Media journal. Instructor recommends the Strathmore Visual Watercolor journal, size 9 x 12. (You can also do this process on some type of loose watercolor paper.)

Micah Goguen obtained his B.A. in Fine Art and his Master’s in Art Therapy from Georgia College & State University in Milledgeville. Residing currently in Macon, Georgia, Micah focuses primarily on bringing art to the community and using art as a form of communication for those struggling to understand and cope with life situations. He also volunteers time at the local community center and works with adults in alcohol and substance recovery as well as with uprooted and traumatized children. Using mural work, art for entertainment and art therapy for healing, Micah collaborates with school systems, local shops, and non-profits to help unify and, most importantly, "spread a message.”

Micah's own artwork conveys his interest in people as he works in a range of media and teaches workshops in Oil and Acrylic Painting, Ceramics, Textiles and Drawing. He is working on several mural projects and founded a group of artists, who hang and display art in privately owned local businesses. The overall vision of the group is to focus and rededicate back to a “buy local, shop local” mentality that strengthens community through unity and purpose.
