Out of the Visual Journal, Onto the Canvas – A Mixed Media Art Workshop
Orly Avineri, Instructor
Dates: August 12th – 15th, 2021 (9am-4pm)
Throughout my years of guiding beautiful people through the practices and processes of art journaling and till today I often hear how that practice makes people feel at ease, safe, free, connected to their creative selves, be themselves, and all kinds of good stuff. At the same time I hear how going outside of the journal, or bigger, makes people feel the opposite, and therefore fearful or having performance anxiety. The truth, I believe, is that once you feel truly comfortable, free, joyous, from within the art journaling practice, there is nothing that can limit you other than your “beliefs”. If you can be free inside of the journal you can be free in any other substrate, any size, any format.
So let’s get our paints out, our papers, our pens, and find our freedoms and joys on another substrate, the canvas!
Let’s make new decisions about our capabilities. Let’s find newness, cause we need it and deserve it. Let’s start making new statements and declarations that better suit our spirits.
Our explorative, eager, brave and loving selves.
