Art Class - $30 - Art Journaling: Broken Crayons Still Color W Heather

I need more of this. I believe we all need more of this. Freedom of expression. Freedom from your critical voice. Freedom from fear.

What if the marks you made, or the paper you collaged or the stencil you used was woven together and told the story of you? What if this freedom eased worry, anxiety, depression, _________________ (fill in the blank.) What if there wasn't an agenda, an end game, but it was only about the process; the journey?

Bring a journal to class if you have one, otherwise I will supply you with watercolor paper and additional painting supplies. You with be given a suggested material list on your first class.

DISCLAIMER: Art journaling can be a path to self awareness. I am not a licensed art therapist. I am merely sharing my experiences with this process, and I am not a substitute for treatment from licensed health professionals.
