You’ve been showing up for everyone else; now it’s time to show up for yourself.
Remember keeping a journal? A place to tell your most cherished and private things, to discover and deepen your understanding of yourself; a place for self discovery and self expression.
Connecting Through Creative Play is a 6- session visual art expression group that meets every other week where you can join others who identify as women who are craving a creative boost for relaxation, companionship, and a big reset. Like a knitting circle, coming together in artistic craft allows us to bring beauty and the collective support we so need into our lives. And, just like your writing journal holds your words, your art journal holds your creative self. All you need is a sketchbook and some basic, inexpensive supplies. Each week brings a gentle optional theme to help you get started.
Working in your journal sketchbook, you will dive deep into your own creativity. You will show up for yourself, be witnessed and supported by the creativity of others, and leave feeling refreshed.
Connecting through Creative Play is a place to explore your inner workings-your emotions, thoughts, and needs-through artmaking. No art experience? You won’t need previous art education or talent. This is not an art class….it’s art recess!
