Understand Your Personal Symbolism

Our souls speak in imagery. Understanding what imagery emotionally invokes for you will support you to understand the deeper signs and symbols that spontaneously arise in your expressive art and writing.

"This class reminds me that everything I see is a springboard for creativity, inspiration and introspection. These daily lessons have helped me to see life through new eyes. I love how the lessons are short and sweet, allowing me to be creative each day to varying degrees, regardless of the amount of spare time I have."   ~ M.B.

Stretch Your Imagination 

Expect to stretch your imagination in new ways!

It can feel challenging to create imaginatively without fun and unusual ideas to spark the process. These expressive art and writing exercises will incite you to play, draw, paint, collage, create poetry, experiment, and free associate.

This imagination course is appropriate for adults, children and teens.

Each day for 45 days you will receive invitations to:

1. Meditate upon an image "spark." 

2. Free associate: Choose one word that the daily image may spontaneously suggest to you - without any apparent direct connection.

3. Create a poem: to explore what the image of the day means to you. (For instance: ‘I am this tree. I’m quite a strong tree, and I’m well rooted, but I don’t seem to have many leaves. It’s winter and I’m cold and bare.’ 

4. Explore a themed collage exercise: Explore personal symbolism with daily collage themes. Each day, spontaneously choose magazine pictures from a magazine, cut them out and glue them into your journal with a glue stick.)

5. Explore a themed drawing or painting exercise: to express your emotions. You will receive daily suggestions for intuitive, free-associative and meditative art-making. Suggested materials: watercolor and tempura paints, felt markers, pencil crayons and oil pastels.

 * Choose one or more directives to play with each day.
