Beyond Words: Meditative & Expressive Art Journaling


 
Artist David Hockney says, “Art is just a line going for a walk.” I love the ease of that concept.

Words! They are wonderful but often insufficient to say what we really want to express. Using simple art exercises such as visual meditation, doodling, collage, found art, this workshop will expand the way you thing about journaling.
 
Art journals can provide a quiet meditative experience or a raucous expression of joy…or any other mood. Combined with words, they enlarge our range of expression. They invite us to engage with our unconscious and to play freely without censorship or judgement. While art journaling is not therapy, you may, nonetheless, find it therapeutic.

No experience needed. Colored pencils, crayons, markers and paper provided by Seton Cove although you are welcome to bring your own.

She teaches wellness workshops that address compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma. As a writer/artist, she also teaches Creative Journaling and leads InterPlay groups. InterPlay is a joyful, creative approach to life that uses improvisational forms—dance, song, storytelling—to enhance the experiences of participants.
