Visual Journal

Your visual journal is a personal creative book that enables you to personalize and document your discovery, development, and educational journey. Include:

  • Sketches and rough ideas
  • Composed, finish artwork
  • Musings
  • Reminders
  • Reflections
  • Notes and questions


Your journal should reflect your personality and interests. It should tell others what you're about, what grabs your attention, and what you have independently researched and discovered on your own, both in and out of class.
