Heart On Your Sleeve

  • Workshop

The Heart On Your Sleeve Project introduces participants to both journaling and the creative process. It guides participants through creating custom pieces of art from their own personal journaling practices.

Carlow-based artist and designer Paul Byrne has developed this course, aimed at teenagers, through years of experience in both journaling and using the creative process daily. The course is designed in three phases.

Introduction to Journaling
Each participant will receive a Heart on Your Sleeve journal, which is full of creative exercises and prompts to help the participant to get started in journaling.

Introduction to the Creative Process
Each participant gets access to an online design tool where they will learn to take findings from their own journaling and make custom pieces of design or art from this. In essence, taking ownership of their feelings and emotions while creating something tangible from it.

Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve
In the final phase, each participant applies their custom artwork to a hoodie. On Cruinniú, each participant will receive their own custom-designed hoodie, professionally printed along with the knowledge to continue using both journaling and the creative process into the future.
