As we move towards the darker days of winter, this workshop will light the candles of our imaginations through making art and writing in community. We will soothe our souls through the sacred ritual of gathering together and using simple art making processes, writing prompts and mindfulness exercises to access our creativity.
We will spend an early December afternoon cultivating an arts-based practice to sustain us as the season changes, while nurturing and restoring our natural resilience and connection to the wisdom of beauty and nature.
If you have attended prior Nurturing Resilience workshops, this is a perfect opportunity to continue your practice of tending to your deeper self through art and writing. You may use the journal that you received in a prior workshop, or I will send a new one to you. Either way, you will receive a packet of imagery and inspiration to enhance your art making process.
If you are new to these workshops, they offer a basis for participants to start or re-start an arts-based reflective practice that will sustain and support. Typically, these workshops are held at the threshold of the season, to celebrate and recognize the rhythms of the earth and ourselves.
Prior to the workshop, participants will be mailed a hand-made journal/sketchbook, collage images and seasonal poems to use and a short list of materials to have available for the art processes.
No prior writing or art making experience is necessary, only a desire to explore your creative spirit.
