In this workshop we’ll tap into our authentic, personal wisdom using written journaling combined with intuitive drawing, mark making, reflection, and discussion.
In this one-hour workshop we’ll center ourselves using a brief grounding exercise, then jot down low-stress responses to a written journaling prompt.
Moving on to a simple drawing exercise, we’ll let our intuition lead the way, holding our journal reflections in our awareness.
When our drawings are complete, we’ll enter a second written journaling session, considering what appeared on the page.
We’ll then share in a safe group (or one-on-one) discussion about what personal insight we see revealed on the page.
Support will be given regarding journaling techniques and prompts, how to create your intuitive drawing, and how to reflect on the art you create.
Mindful Art focuses on the process of exploration and internal inquiry through art, not on the visual result.
No experience is required.
If participating in a group, sharing is welcome and encouraged, but not required.
This workshop is an invitation to play, let go of perfection, and get to know yourself better.
Unlined loose-leaf paper or journal.
Pens, pencils, “dry” materials with color – markers, colored pencils, pastels, crayons, etc. Optional paint if your paper can handle it
Online via Zoom, time and date TBD based on your schedule.
All of the journal entries above were created using a similar process as used in this workshop.
Even though Mindful Art is NOT art therapy, the exercises can often feel relaxing, grounding, and insightful.
Workshop doesn’t sound like the best fit,
but curious about starting a regular art journaling routine? Maybe INSPIRED is the ticket. (Wink!)
