“An art journal is a space for questions that may no have answers, a place for thoughts that may otherwise not have a home, a safe container for emotions so that they do not have to be loose in the world.” Kelley Brown
Creative Journaling combines journaling with art-making to deepen the exploration and insight that can be gained from the journaling process. Journaling on strengths and positive experiences fosters hope and builds resilience. These workshops are designed for all ranges of artistic experience–previous art training is not needed—you need not consider yourself an “artist” to attend. Each session will have a different focus, you are welcome to attend the whole series or just one.
Be sure to bring a journal to work in. This can be a traditional bound book such as a blank lined journal, a blank drawing book, or a hand made book. Consider that you will be doing artwork in it as well as writing–this may determine the size and type of journal you use. All other materials will be provided.
