"I decided to start water coloring and journaling on my own but didn’t know where to start. And one day I met Genine, big coincidence she happened to be a master at it. Her introduction class was the best way to start and understand the medium."

Visual Journaling has always been on my list for learning for the last few years. It was a sign when I saw Genine’s post about her classes. I don’t have an artistic background at all which I think made it easier for me to learn. Genine is not only a spectacular artist but it’s her passion for the art that really shines through and is contagious. She is very encouraging, flexible, patient and kind. She encourages you to embrace imperfection and to find your own style. I love all her tips on how to make visual painting travel friendly and accessible. Thanks to her, it’s been a year now since I've been sketching & painting and I am on my third book! Thank you so much Genine for helping me unlock my new passion!

I looked forward to the introduction to visual journaling class every week. It was great to be able to switch off from the day-to-day, and immerse myself in something different. It really helped that there was never any pressure to produce anything that looked good, as I was able to just enjoy the process without worrying about the end-product.
