Color Journaling Workshop
Register here: https://www.dearjackfoundation.org/news-and-events/tbs_mod7/
Happy, sad, mad, excited, exhausted, worried, afraid…we’ve all been there and we can all let it out through color and layers. Process art can actually be very therapeutic and healing, but we are not going to label it and put any expectations on it! Color journaling is a way to create for the process instead of a product, and open up to your authentic self. Creating for process is all about letting go of expectations, judgments, and technique. It’s about tuning in, trusting your intuition, and taking risks. Come as you are and enjoy a night of being present and trusting your true creative self in a supportive environment.
Process painting is all about letting go of expectations, judgments, and technique. There is no right or wrong here. Come as you are and enjoy a night of trusting your creative self in a supportive environment.
In this 90 min. workshop you will practice using a sketchbook and simple materials to explore what wants to be expressed in that moment. We will show up as we are. No prep or skill required (often, the people that embrace this practice the easiest are the ones that have no background or experience with art!). What we practice together can be done again and again, as often as you like on your own.
Bring 2 things:
A sketchbook of any size or type (9×12 or 6×9 work great if you have to get one) Printer paper will also be just fine in a pinch if using dry materials.
Any art materials you have at home with COLOR
Suggested (oil pastel, crayon, chalk pastel, or simple paint like tempera or watercolor) Note: If choosing paint, all you need is a small, medium, and bigger brush. Whatever feels right to you.
These will also work and are suggested for those that like to be very detailed (colored pencil or markers).
If you’re not sure, choose oil pastel or watercolor.
This process works best with materials that color in spaces quickly and can be layered easily. It’s also best to use simple materials that don’t require special techniques or tools that will take a lot of time to execute and get in the way of letting the process flow. Use what you have or are comfortable with. Save trying something new for another day.
