Real Healthy Creativity

Beyond Morning Pages

Posted by Michelle Jacobs on Sunday, July 11, 2010 Under: Visual Art & Soul Journalling
Isn't time to go beyond words?  I for one love love love Julia Cameron's work, and was part of a group we called "The Rivonia Circle" several years ago who did the "Artist's Way" course together.  Really great stuff.  However, years on, I am not seeing anything to take us all further!  What's the next step?

Again, plenty online and overseas when we google, but we want something home grown for locals.  Introducing Visual Art Journalling and Soul Pages!  Classes and workshops will draw on a wealth of rich resources and processes found in university courses, e-course, books and our own experiences.  We will develop as we all grow, and the community will inspire itself.

I've taught creativity for writing before, and used different art forms like clay, treasure hunts, drawing and painting to encourage the inner muse to reveal herself.  One of those students published their autobiography, "Running to Standstill", and the feedback all around was really positive.  The company I was a guest facilitator for even like it so much they took the course on as their own...but that's a whole different story altogether.  Point being?  I know that words love friends.  And not everyone is gifted with an unending supply of imaginary ones.  Some of us need prompting.  Some of us need lateral paths that seem to lead us away from words only to discover new ones...words and paths...that result in more juicy writing.  And so, we will present Visual Art Journalling and Soul Pages.  For people who want to layer, erase, add, delete, ooze, squish, colour, shape and squiggle their way to a full and succulent page.  Yes, yes, yes.  We are all artists are we.
