My next workshop will be held in a beautiful classroom with large windows at Deland at Casa Montessori school on Saturday March 7th from 2-4:30 pm. Cost is 35 dollars without journal and 45 with a new mixed media journal. Class will be kept at a maximum of 8 people. Below is a link to word document with all the information above the photo.
When my brother-in-law died a couple years back, I know he loved the Beatles song Blackbird. So by taking some of the key lyrics to the song, combined with paint and symbolism I built a tribute page to my lost loved one. This is only one example of healing through art journaling.

As a teaching artist and art therapist I am happy to be now teaching healing art workshops that combine art processes with mindfulness. The journey and discovery of creating art as it unfolds can help unblock artists and unlock creativity for anybody interested in the arts.
The beauty of mixed media journaling is that without any drawing skills, images, memorabilia, lyrics, paint, pastel and other media choices can be combined to tell you personal story.
In my last workshop at The Hub in New Smyrna Beach, we explored painting intuitively in layers to build a history by playing with mark making before adding imagery or symbols. Composition and design elements come after the play and discovery to release the inner child.
