What we're about
Welcome! This group is for women (18 or older) who are looking for community, connection, and a place to creatively express their heARTs story using colour, image and words. No art experience is needed.
Art is KNOWING ~ Art is HEALING ~ Art is FUN!
Our art journals become a creative companion and visual playground where we can explore, try new techniques, process emotions, and discover ways in which art can become a catalyst for healing and self-discovery.
"I found I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for." ~Georgia O'Keefe
Basics you'll need: An art journal (Mixed media, 5x7 or 8 1/2 x 11, is a good size to start, will take all mediums, and is available at any art/craft supply store); scissors and glue stick (UHU preferred). Anything else is optional; you can build a kit as your interest and curiosity grows, and sharing is encouraged :)) Please - bring dry media only to the cafe - prepare background pages (acrylic, watercolour, etc) at home.
There are no rules in art journaling, just opportunities for creative play!
Expressive ARTS: I also facilitate various expressive arts and creativity workshops in my home studio. I'll post them here as well in order to reach a different audience that may be interested in going deeper with their artwork. Expressive art workshops may include visual arts, story-telling, writing, poetry, music, and more. Please see my website for more information about me and what I offer/do: http://www.arts-story.com
Let's make art and have FUN!
