We will meet at my home art and yoga studio. After a brief introduction, guests will be led through a 45 minutes gentle yoga practice to soothe the body and prepare the mind for creativity. After that class we will sip on some tea and enjoy snacks while moving into the art studio for the visual journal part of our workshop. During this time, guests will receive guidance on creating their own unique visual art journal pages which combine words, collage, painting, and other techniques to record personal experiences. Art journaling is a powerful way to exercise creativity and can be very cathartic and relaxing. A large variety of materials will be provided and guests will bring home a small “visual journaling kit” to help jumpstart their journaling practice. To close the workshop, we will again move into the yoga studio for a short yoga practice and close out with a guided meditation.
