Creative Journaling
This class is for artists and creative people who have blank books just waiting to be filled. Creative journals are repositories for things that inspire us and are therefore places we can go to when seeking creative inspiration. They allow one to stop and savour, to explore and to foster inner awareness. We will explore various types of journals and the different purposes they serve, as well as various approaches to keeping them. (eight sessions) Heather Allen Swartthouw
