Expand Your Writing with Art

Organized by the Therapeutic Writing Institute www.twinstitute.net

Using art in simple ways in our journal can give us access to information we can’t find with words alone. Through the language of colors, lines, shapes, symbols and images, art can connect us more directly to our intuition and subconscious. Combined with writing, it increases the connections within the brain, which fosters creativity and insight. In this class we will look at simple ways to add visual elements to a written page, explore different kinds of collages, get comfortable expressing ourselves with drawing, and learn a wide variety of techniques to open windows in our pages that transform into something healing.

You will be invited to get into right-brain mode, explore spontaneously, dive deeply and also to play! No art skills necessary.
