Journey to the Soul

Tuesdays, Returns in late November

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. Continue reading
