Intuitive Art Journaling in the Wild!

When: Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017

Time: 9am-12pm

Location: Meyer Ranch Park, Morrison, CO

Grab your art journal and a few of your favorite mediums and supplies and join us for a wild experience in the hills of Morrison, Colorado!

Life can get wild. The stress of the day-to-day can run wild through our bodies and keep us from enjoying the moment. Sometimes we can get lost in the wilderness of our own “stuff.” All of this can cause us to feel disconnected from our own hearts, purpose and passions.

The Wild heARTs workshop will bring you on a journey back to your heart through the healing powers of nature and intuitive art journaling. 

  • The wilderness holds no judgments or expectations.
  • The solid mountain terrain offers strength and grace big enough to hold our whole heart and all the stuff we are lugging around.
  • The tree-lined trails guide us through a process of compassion and grit.
What a wonderful place to meet ourselves in our art journals!

Through a series of empowering prompts and exercises, you will:

  • release the weight of stress and discomfort
  • connect with nature, others and yourself, so you can
  • {re}discover your true, wild heart within
Sounds amazing, right!? I know! If you’re jazzed and ready to go, then go ahead and reserve your spot now!

Find yourself in the Wild

What is art journaling

  • An art journal is a visual journal. Rather than solely using words to write out thoughts, feelings or expereinces, art journalers make art to have a conversation with themselves. An art journal can be made up of all kinds of art, like, paintings, drawings, photography, poetry, collage, mixed media items – you name it!
  • There are many ways to use art journaling in your life. There is no right or wrong.
  • If you want to learn more about art journaling in general, please feel free to contact me! I’d be happy to chat more.
Do I have to already be an art journaler to attend
  • Nope! People with all art journaling experience levels are welcome. This workshop will not be focused on technique or how “good” your art looks.
Will there be hiking involved
  • Yes! But just a little bit. We will meet in the public parking area and, together, we will hike up a little ways to ‘our spot’
  • Participants do not need to be seasoned hikers, but please make sure you are physically able to participate safely.
What will I need to bring
  • Your art journal and a few of your fav tools and mediums. Since we will be in the wilderness, we will not have access to electricity to remember that when choosing your materials. This will be a fun way to try something new if you’re used to using acrylics, pastes and gels (like me!).
  • Check out our video describing what materials you could bring! Click here to watch!
  • Proper clothing and shoes (i.e.: sneakers/hiking shoes, layers, jacket, hat, etc)
