Are you looking for answers to the challenges in your life?
Would you like to explore a tool that helps you access your own reserves of wisdom?
Introduction to SoulCollage®
SoulCollage® is an easy, fun tool for exploration and expression of the many parts of the Self. This is a creative process accessible to everyone–even those people who believe they have no artistic ability.
Using imagination and intuition, each participant creates his or her own deck of collaged cards from simple materials: magazine images, photographs, scissors, glue, and heavy card. Each card represents some aspect of the Self; this practice honors the personal journey of each individual, and promotes personal growth and self-acceptance.
Once individual SoulCollage® cards have been created, participants are invited to step deeper into each card through journaling, visualization and other activities.
Textured, coloured, patterned or plain paper – artists have at their disposal an unprecedented amount of options when it comes to creating. This class will arm the artist with the knowledge of the properties of myriad papers and how to pair them with appropriate media, such as watercolour, ink, pencil, pastel, charcoal to achieve the vision inhabited in the minds eye.
