Rekindling Our Joy Through Early Memories of Joy: Expressive Art Journaling This Thursday February 1st, 2018.
For this Thursday's expressive art journaling workshop, ask yourself what are your earliest memories of joy? Was it a particular activity that brought you joy? A hug, time with a loved one, time in nature? With this journal prompt in mind, you might want to try to create a journal page spread around it as a reminder of rekindling our joy!
Please bring any old cards, paper or fabric ephemera or memorabilia that might end up in your art journal. If you don't have any, come anyway as we have collage materials, art supplies, and art journals.
Also, please know that this is simply an art journal prompt and you are free to use your own prompt or follow your intuition and see what is created by pure exploration of materials.
Either way, registration is here atlanticcenterforthearts.org/event-or-exhibition/expressive-art-journaling-7/

Words and Art by Pam Crawford Palmer
Here are two of my favorite journal pages....
Journaling for me is such a great way to clear my mind and to explore my art in a way that is so free spirited....
I am learning to just go where my mind, heart and hand take me. I love to paint backgrounds ahead of time
and then revisit when the mood strikes....what are the images that show themselves?
Or in the case of the yoga pages, (done over several short sittings) what are my thoughts and feelings
about the subject? Perhaps one day I can transfer this flow to canvas but if not no stress as this is for me
and I love it and it fits in a drawer...lol
