Rescheduled To A Later Date---Art Journaling Drop In Time

art-journal-2.jpeg

Art journals combine visual journaling (a layered combination of paint, marker, magazine clippings, stamping, etc) with writing & sketching to create finished pages. Every imaginable style, media and technique is used by art journalists. There aren’t any rules, and each book is as unique as the artist who creates it. Mixed media journals are easy + fun, spark creativity and encourage personal expression-- and the best part: there is no  wrong way to do them.

Whether you are an art journal-er having a hard time making time at home to "play" with your mixed media materials, or are a newbie curious about what it is and not quite ready to invest in your own materials, this is the perfect opportunity for you to come get your hands (and paper) dirty.  

Kitty will be set up and ready to journal for three hours, join her for the whole time, or stop in for as long as you have. Bring along your journal and anything specific you need to complete page(s) you are working on, or if you are new to this, come try a single page we have ready for you. You'll have access to our large array of supplies and materials, and Kitty's wisdom.

Healing the Mother Wound Workshop

We are so honored to have this awesome workshop happening in our studio.

Join Andrea of Sacred Pathways for an introduction to the sacred adventure of Healing The Mother Wound. 

The collective unconscious of our society places high and often unrealistic expectations on the Mother Figure. We, as a culture believe that the “Mother” should be selfless and be nurturing to others needs all of the time. These held beliefs create a great deal of pain for women as we are either always trying to be the “perfect mother” or we judge other women, including our own mothers, who do not live up to these expectations. 

In this class, we will explore the origin of the Mother Wound and how it impacts our relationship with our own mothers, other women and ourselves. We will engage with the Mother Archetype, through meditation, journaling, and creative expression

Financial investment of $20.00. Sliding Fee available for those in need. Make payments to secure your spot at: paypal.me/sacredpathways 

Cash and Checks will be accepted the night of the event but you need to RSVP to Sacredpathways1@gmail.com or call Andrea @ 616-635-8281 secure your spot.

The class is facilitated by Andrea Sulak, MA LLP. Andrea has been practicing principles of Humanistic Psychology with individuals and groups since 1999. One of her professional passions is working with females to overcome trauma, shame, and low self-worth issues. She also facilitates Chakradance™ and meditative dance classes in the Mid-west.

Art Journaling Using Mixed Media
Mar
24
1:30 PM13:30

Art Journaling Using Mixed Media

Join Terri & Kitty for this introductory workshop into mixed media art journaling.  Mixed media journals are beautiful/therapeutic expressions of your innermost feelings.

Open up new pathways and possibilities within yourself as you tap into your inner artist igniting a fire of creativity and confidence. In this very personal exploratory process, there are no wrong lines, no mistakes, and no wrong way to do it, just a chance to uniquely express your thoughts, feelings and artistic style.

We will begin with a short meditation, then get our hands dirty as we create one page in our blank journal using our supplies. Participants will leave with a journal of their own, along with a list of supplies needed to continue the practice at home.

No experience is necessary. This is a perfect intro to journaling for those who think "I am not creative", for those who love to find new ways to express themselves creatively, or for a positive way to tune in and let out pent up feelings and emotions. It is also a bonus way to recycle old art supplies into a new use.

Saturday, March 24 | 1:30-3:30 pm | $25

This class is limited to 8 participants. If you would rather pay at the event via cash or check, please send an email to terri@getoffgo.com to reserve your place.

Come learn new ways to tune into your own body, focusing on posture, balance and subtle shifting of your energy. This workshop will be led by Scott and Hung from the Yushinkan Dojo in Grand Rapids.

During the workshop we will be partnering with others to learn how to better "listen" through a light touch, and to observe and report back from the outside.
