Living Aspen's Art Journaling Workshop meets weekly for about 3 months in the fall and spring. It helps individuals engage with their creativity, differentiate between shame and guilt, practice empathy, and cultivate courage, compassion, and connection.
To participate you must:
- be 18 years of age or older
- be a survivor of abuse; and/or be in relationship (spouse, family member, friend, neighbor, coworker, etc.) with someone who has experienced abuse or trauma; and/or have a desire to volunteer with Living Aspen
- be seeking a healing journey
Provided Supplies: Living Aspen will provide all art supplies required for the workshop, including: brushes, paint, colored pencils, markers, tape, glue, washi tape, scrapbook paper, scissors, etc.
Required Supplies: Participants are required to purchase Brené Brown's book "The Gifts of Imperfection" and an art journal. (We will discuss sizing, paper weight, binding - all the details - on the first night).
"Safe Space" Expectations and Attendance: To protect the integrity and trust cultivated with the participants of the workshop, individuals will miss no more than two (2) classes during the course of the workshop. Participants will notify the facilitator of their absence prior to class via call, text or email. The facilitator will take attendance each week and will contact participants who have missed two (2) classes to encourage them to participate in a new workshop session at a later date. In order to build trust and practice courage, compassion, and connection, participants will not reveal details of another’s story (verbally or written) to outside parties without permission.
