Revive Your Sketchbook Practice

14 Days in A Handmade Journal

INSTANT ACCESS to the class I created for the Sketchbook Revival Summit. The online summit was a free two-week event with more than 15 master teachers.


In its original version, this course was my offering to the participants in the summit, but is now offered here to anyone in my creative community who wants/needs to reconnect to their creative practice. In this 14 Day Course I walk you through 14 of my favorite activities for filling an art journal, written journal, or sketchbook.

This is a companion course to my talk/tutorial during the Sketchbook Revival Summit hosted by Karen Abend and including 20+ other teachers.

I hope you enjoy the lessons in this workshop.

I look forward to seeing what you create and helping you revive the love of your handmade journals.

Hello Beautiful Creative You!
I'm happy you're here.

I'm Kiala Givehand, a mixed media book artist, creative business strategist, and workshop leader originally from Florida, temporarily living in Northern Georgia (by way of Oakland, California), where I reside with my husband, Damon.

For almost 20 years, I taught English, Language Arts, and Creative Writing at every level, while simultaneously traveling the U.S. delivering workshops and presentations to educators. While I still travel occasionally to work with teachers and writers, I now enjoy working one-on-one and in small groups with students, teachers, artists, writers, and creative entrepreneurs who want to identify their passions so they can embrace their gifts and talents through the empowered expression of their deepest desires. I do this work as a Creative Business Strategist because I love helping others find the thing that fills them with joy.

I've done a lot of things in my short 40+ years on this planet, but I'm most proud of raising my nephew Treavor, and listening to my inner wisdom by doing the things that make me come alive. Constructing handmade books and art journals is one of those things that allow me to feel A L I V E!!! And I'd love to have you join me on this journey. CLICK HERE if you want to see a gallery of some of my art journal pages.

I cherish every single day and treat life as one amazing adventure. I play with paint and watercolor, fold paper into books, write poetry, short fiction, & creative non-fiction, and sometimes I blog. But always, every single day, I journal and do something that I feel is creative. Oh!! And did I mention that I'm the proud owner of a fabulous collection of fountain pens? (I know. Geek alert!)

Join me and let's create something beautiful, TODAY!!
