ART JOURNALING AS SOUL PRACTICE
with Kendra Rosenblatt, LMHC, MFT
4 Friday mornings, 10:00am-12:00
March 6, 13, 20, 27
Note of Compassion to Self: You do not need to be “arty” in any way to enjoy this series!
This class is designed for people interested in creating their own creative art journaling practice. A journal can be a container for deep expression with words and images of all kinds. It can be private or shared and can hold the places that are most intimate to us. We can use them to record our personal stories, feelings and experiences, and they can be a way to connect to ourselves and our deepest soul voice.
You will learn ways to create time and space to play with new materials as we explore expressing the layers of life through the soul practice of art journaling. This 4-week series offers experimentation with different art mediums--pens, paper, markers, paint, ink, fabric, elements from nature--and this series ultimate aim is to invite you into the regular practice of listening to your expressive self through art journaling.
Week One: Make it Sacred, Art Journaling as a Healing Practice
“Art is God Made Visible” (Alexej Jawlensky)
Week Two: Images/Objects as Storytellers
“Imagination is faithful to the full home of the heart, and all its rooms.” (John O’Donohue)
Week Three: Creativity as Textures of the Soul
“All I did was to look at what the universe showed me, to let my brush bear witness to it.” (Claude Monet)
Week Four: Let’s open up!
“Let’s get a little crazy here.” (Bob Ross)
Cost: $20-$40 per session. All materials will be supplied for the workshop except for the book/journal that you will be using. You are asked to find a book that lies flat when opened. Participants are also encouraged to bring any additional materials and inspiration that you would like to create with.

Facilitated by Kendra Rosenblatt, LMHC, MFT. For over 20 years she has more formally studied photography, printmaking, textiles, drawing, painting, sculpture, collage and the art of book making. For the past 15 years she has been helping people develop greater ease with life’s challenges and strengthen their self-acceptance as a creative therapist. Creativity has always been a big part of her life and a way of healing and expressing herself. It has been the form of expression that comes most intuitively and naturally in times of big emotion. She recognizes it as a major life supporting tool for herself and wants to inspire and support others in their relationship to their intuitive creativity.
