A note from your facilitator:
I would like to invite you to join me on an adventure. It does not require leaving home, or even leaving your chair. Most of us are staying close to home these days anyway, so why not play inside our heads? A great playground! Your head is full of ideas, memories, stories and your stored wisdom and humor. This is NOT a writing class! There is no judgement, or teaching, even. Just a path to journalling and writing more; a pathway to your heart. My writing workshop which begins on Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 will help you to access the riches inside of you. I can't wait to meet you and hope you will join me!
~ Jane Naylor, MA, LCSW
A note from your facilitator:
Each week I’ll provide a different theme and art lesson. From that “jumping off place”, we’ll spend the rest of our time together working on a piece of art while visiting online. There are absolutely no expected outcomes and no art experience is required. So... Gather up whatever art materials you have at home. I’ll share ways to utilize art materials and techniques which can provide a new or extended vocabulary for you to express yourself. I hope that you’ll join me for this fun series and discover the unexpected rewards of making art!
~Nancy Bindig, BS, Art Education
Write for Your Life!
Everyone has the capacity to write creatively and joyfully. In this 4-week series there will be no writing skills, no evaluation, no criticism. Participants will be encouraged to simply write in various forms (memoir, journal, short pieces) and share or not, as they wish. Increased comfort with writing in any form of self-expression has been demonstrated to facilitate healing, so we will be experimenting with many ways to get to the goal of less judgment, more writing! The first session will be introductory - an explanation of why people lose the joy of journaling along the way and the time will be used to create a safe, comfortable space. Following sessions will include short writing exercises, meditation, games and fun. All supplies will be provided. This FREE series is available to anyone who has had a cancer diagnosis, regardless of when or what type.
ONLINE series meets Tuesdays at 1:30 PM
Series ends June 9
Start from the Heart, Art for Self-Care
Creative expression is sometimes put on hold, forgotten, or simply
not recognized as we move through the stages and changes in our lives.
During times like these, when we're called to sit quietly with
ourselves, art can become another tool to help us reflect, release,
express, and take part in our own self-care. Our gifted art instructor, Nancy, invites you to express your creativity for this 6-week online art series.
Yes, you can do this from home and no, you do not have to be an artist!
Art materials to have on hand each week:
pencil, fine tip black felt tip pen and paper
colored pencils or paint of your choice
