Alive with Beauty • 2014 Art Journal Workshops

“We were sent into the world alive with beauty. As soon as we choose Beauty, unseen forces conspire to guide and encourage us towards unexpected forms of compassion, healing and creativity.” (John O’Donohue)

—-

It is far too easy to believe the idea that only the chosen few are artists. We are all creative.  All beings desire to make a mark, change our landscape or bring an idea to life.

The creative state is the natural state for humans. We do so each day in many different ways and in many forms.

I wish to empower each individual to reclaim their own creativity. I believe art journaling can be a practice for reconnecting and claiming your creativity.

Anyone can experience the benefits of art journaling. The act of writing, drawing, putting hands to paper or making marks are all powerful forms of expression. Art journaling has the capacity to bring about clarity, direction and balance within the individual. Our journals can become a safe place for free expression.

In addition, art journaling is just FUN! It’s a great way to release stress, to play, and to explore materials and mediums.

Hope to meet you at one of my workshops!

Happy Creating! ~ Rachel

A little about the venue:

Imagine Coffee  is a wonderfully inspiring coffee shop. They are super supportive of the arts, and have live painting several times a week. They host local art shows as well, and regularly have local musicians. The classes are held in the large conference room in the back, so we will have our own space, away from the main floor. 

In addition, 10% of the proceeds of each class are donated to charity.

      Hi! Love your excitement! I am in Oregon- about 1.5 hours south of Portland, and 45 min North of Eugene. Corvallis is a beautiful little college town, with plentiful hiking trails and a neat river front as well. There are historic homes and buildings and it is home to Oregon State University. I’d love it if you came out! But I am also open to travel too!
