2019 has been my first year with Wanderlust, but it won’t be my last! When I started last year, I was fairly new to art journaling. I’d dabbled with another art journal community, but it just didn’t feel like the right fit for me.
I am so glad I found Wanderlust! It’s really propelled me and my art (it’s a huge step that I can even feel comfortable calling what I do “art”!). I have loved the wide variety of teachers and lessons.
All of the instructors have been a true pleasure to watch and learn from. I’ve also loved having a theme for each month, and I love the cadence of having a new lesson each week. I’m on the west coast of the US, so I always get so excited for Thursday evenings when I can watch the new lesson! Weekly lessons are just the right pace to keep me motivated and interested without being overwhelmed. I don’t necessarily “keep up”, but I feel totally comfortable going at my own pace and in my own order.
It’s also been wonderful having such a warm Facebook community. I feel like I’ve gotten to know some of the members through their art and their comments, and folks are so generous and encouraging – it feels like an extended group of friends! As a result of being part of Wanderlust, I’ve learned many new techniques, been inspired in new ways, and am really proud of what I’ve created.
Thank you, both of you, for putting so much care and attention to making this such a fun and fulfilling program! I can’t wait to do it again next year!
