HEART EXPRESSION: DRAWING FROM GRATITUDE 3 weeks
This experiential workshop begins and ends with an inspirational video. Discover your “symbolic heart imagery” as you focus on the life-changing power of gratitude. Using excerpts from Melody Beattie’s book Gratitude: Affirming the Good Things in Life, you will practice relaxation and visualization exercises. Draw from the wisdom of our dominant and non-dominant hands to create meaningful, powerful and ‘personified’ imagery, together with feeling qualities and their antonyms or opposites. Explore, express and tap the essence of gratitude and change. Let the healing journey begin! Students will be provided with oil pastels, chalk pastels and introduced to a variety of expressive art techniques. No previous art experience required. Please inquire about optional attendance in only one or two meetings.

A CREATIVE JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE AND CHANGE
Labyrinths are a single winding path you follow that leads into and out from a center. Making a labyrinth drawing can be relaxing… allowing you to expand and focus on opening to creative growth and change. This workshop begins with a brief overview of the Labyrinth and the Three Stages of a Labyrinth Walk. Following a guided relaxation: “Letting Go… Holding On, Your Journey through Life and Change”… students will use labyrinth templates to make a personal drawing. Come explore and express yourself using mixed media, expressive art and journaling techniques. No previous art experience required!
