How to Make and Keep a Mixed Media Art Journal for Excavation, Insight, and Wholing Yourself
There is a silent language within all of us that reveals the truth of our thoughts, feelings, and emotions far more fluently than words. That language is imagery.
Art journaling uses one’s inner vision to imagine what a thought, feeling, or emotional reaction would look like if it were expressed as a color, shape, or image.
Explaining in words how you feel when you lose a loved one or when you fall in love is for most of us an impossible task. Words simply can’t describe such an experience. But images can – and with a depth that words cannot achieve.
The Inner Journey of Art Journaling is a 12 week online course beginning on September 24th. Over the course of the twelve weeks, you will be guided through each step of our framework for Inner Journeying.
Each chapter contains multi media lessons that will add to your creative toolbox and push you to get out of your head and into your felt senses.
Each of the 4 chapters focuses on a new theme to be explored and includes:
-A body-centering meditation,
-A creative visualization for the theme and an alternative writing exercise,
-Step-by-step techniques for responding with art materials,
-Time to "read" and journal about your spread, and
-A healing|wholing action to be added into your art.
What Terri will be teaching you in in this course does not require any artistic experience. We'll use simple supplies that you might already have around the house or can easily be purchased at Michael's, Hobby Lobby, or Amazon.
Terri will guide you through a mixed-media art journaling process. As we work with journal prompts - colors, symbols and images emerge. Over the course of 12 weeks you will experience transformation of your emotions, beliefs, self-identify, and possibly, even a new relationship to the Divine within you.
