Inner Strength Sanctuaries
The word “sanctuary” refers to a place of refuge or safety. In this art-based workshop, we will create small found object sculptures as sanctuaries to protect a quality or virtue that we would like to honor or increase in our lives. These inner strengths–such as gratitude, joy, hope, resilience, or humor—sometimes need a sacred haven. Together we will explore our sense of play, delight our senses, and create a shelter for the strengths we value in our lives.

This workshop is designed for all ranges of artistic experience–you need not consider yourself an artist to attend. Materials will be provided but attendees are also invited to bring any personally meaningful objects that they might want to include in their sanctuaries.

Snacks will be provided. Bring a box lunch. Lunch can also be gotten from healthy, reasonably priced restaurants in the neighborhood.

Objective 1) Attendees will be able to identify and list strengths using Peterson and Seligmans’s Character Strengths and Virtues.
Objectives 1) Attendees will be able to list three ways that focusing on character strengths help us manage and recover from adversity.
Objectives 3) Attendees will be able to list three strategies for using found objects and boxes as tools in art therapy for identifying and meeting therapeutic goals.

Studio K & Creative Wellbeing Workshops
Present
CREATIVE ART JOURNALING:
ART AND WRITING TO INCREASE OUR WELLBEING IN 2015
Sunday January 25, 2015 10AM-3PM
Creative Journaling combines writing with art making to help us relax, refocus and deepen the exploration and insight that can be gained from the journaling process. In this engaging and fun workshop, we will explore how art journaling can be used to reflect on what’s going on in your life and uncover new layers of inspiration for the New Year.

“an art journal is a space for questions that may have no 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

This workshop is designed for all ranges of artistic and writing experience—you need not consider yourself an “artist” or “writer” to attend and benefit. Participants will leave with specific tools for increasing wellbeing in themselves and in their work.

We will have blank journals to purchase and free used books to alter or you can bring your own “journal.” This can be a traditional bound book such as a blank lined journal, a blank drawing book, a handmade book, or non-traditional such as a deck of cards or index cards. All other art materials will be provided.

Heathy snacks will be offered. We will have a short break for lunch—either bring a bag lunch or lunch is also available from reasonably priced restaurants in the neighborhood.

Continuing Education Credits Available!
For counselors, art therapists, expressive therapists, social workers, marriage and family therapists who wish to receive 4.5 CECs, the workshop objectives are:

Attendees will be able to list therapeutic benefits of writing and journaling.
