The Art of Crafting Visual Metaphors in Art Journaling

May 1, 2021, 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Free, and open to everyone!

Live Oak Cultural Center, 1050 Live Oak St, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168

Class limit is eight people for registration. Click here to register

Metaphor-A metaphor is a figure of speech that, for rhetorical effect, directly refers to one thing by mentioning another. It may provide clarity or identify hidden similarities between two different ideas.

Metaphors are often compared with other types of figurative language, such as antithesis, hyperbole, metonymy and simile. Wikipedia

For example:
All The World is a Stage
Love is a Battlefield
My cup is full
My cup is empty
Kisses are the Flowers of Affection

Visually, an image of any metaphor ( like an empty or full cup) can be used as a metaphor within the art journal to help us tell our stories.

Come up with your own metaphor or use a universal metaphor (find examples on the internet)

Supplies to bring: 

print or draw imagery of a couple of different metaphors that can help you tell your story.

(Google examples of metaphors that you can relate to.)

Bring scraps of fabric, pretty papers, words, if you can.

We will have some basic paint brushes but during pandemic

please bring your own paintbrushes and an old used gift card to paint with will help.

Please bring your own scissors

Atlantic Center for the Art will provide art journals, paint, and Modge Podge glue. 

Masks are required when not at table working. 

Everyone will be spaced at tables positioned with an empty space directly across the table.
