Journey to the Soul

Tuesdays, Ongoing

Led by Jennie
“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily lives from our souls” Pablo Picasso

Do you feel that you have little time for yourself? Not enough time to simply be?
In this 6-week class cycle, you can explore in an open expressive arts studio to combine uninhibited art-making with thoughtful writing and reflection. The studio at JourneyWorks is a safe space, free of criticism, providing you with a healthy environment to access your inner wisdom and explore and expand your intuition. No prior art or writing experience necessary – just an open mind. This is a time for you to deepen your journey inward, and to explore your own soul’s path in your own way.
After a simple orientation, you will have time to independently explore the studio through movement, writing, drawing, painting, and simple sculpture materials. Techniques will be presented such as Touch Drawing, altered book making, paper making, painting, collage and puppetry. We will finish by coming back to the circle to share our experiences and creations with each other in a supportive way. Support and guidance is available throughout.

Sign up for one or for all!

Registration Required. $40.00 per session. Sliding scale offered.

Releasing Grief

DSC00827

Finding Support for Healing Grief

Sharing our grief in a group can help us to feel connected and supported. Grief is about acknowledging transition. Using the expressive arts offers us new ways to communicate, tell our stories, and express our grief. In this group we will use the arts to gently explore self expression, and to gain insight, growth, and healing.
Together we will create a safe place to:

Explore our losses.
Use the arts to deepen our understanding and healing.
Look to the arts for resources for our lives today.
Have art to keep that honors our grief and our loved one.
Create Rituals to support and nurture connections to ourselves and those departed
Connect to, witness, and support others who have experienced loss. Preregistration Necessary.
NO ART EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY.
All expressive work will be taught and guided.

Touch Drawing: A Window into Our True Selves

Touch DrawingIn this workshop, we will learn the art of touch drawing. Touch drawing was developed by Deborah Koff-Chapin. It is a form of printmaking that involves rolling ink on a plate, placing paper over on the ink, and using the hands to draw and paint. The deep connection of fingers to the paper offers us a unique and direct relationship to the soul.
By creating a series of touch drawings, one can work deeper and deeper into the process. Touch drawings are powerful in their simplicity, and can be worked on, and added to, by using other art mediums such as collage or painting to enhance the image. Other expressive arts will be used to support the journey. In this 3 day workshop, Jennie will support you in having the time and space to create, and work into a series of touch drawings.
Please wear comfortable clothing that might get artistically enhanced. No artistic experience is necessary. All materials included. Preregistration Required.

Saturdays, January, 29, and February 7 and February 14 9:00am to1:00, Fee: $50 per session or $ 145.00 for all 3
Location: SEBA Gallery, Pine Street
