A major transition in one’s life can be a time of fear and stress, and the creative act of art journaling can be very healing. It can also be a time of excitement and anticipation, and expressing it artistically in a journal can assist in discovering the path of one’s soul. Visioning our future, expressing it artistically on a vision board and holding it before us, can help us find our path as well as move into it. This workshop is being offered to women of all generations (age 18 and older) who are going through or about to experience a major transition in their lives.
During this educational and fun workshop, April will integrate the tool of art journaling with vision boards to help you see the power of your future. You will have the opportunity to vision your path, express it artistically (with or without words), as you learn these tools. You will go home with the beginning of your own art journal and a vision board to hold before you in the transition period ahead. As we meet in circle at the beginning and end of each session of the 2-part workshop, you will learn from women of multiple generations as they experience a variety of transitions.
To help you prepare for creating your vision board on November 16th, Interfaith Chaplain, Melanie-Prejean Sullivan, DMin., will join our closing circle on November 9th. Melanie will give guidance on possible questions that may assist in the discernment process.
The Workshop is funded by an Art Meets Activism Grant awarded to Spirit of Sophia by Kentucky Foundation for Women. Coffee/tea, healthy refreshments, spiral bound hard cover art journal, vision board and art supplies are provided. Bring your curiosity and dreams!
Max Participants: 15 To be sure all spots are filled, a registration fee of $25 is required.
