NEW MONTHLY CREATIVE ARTS CIRCLE
This Month's Theme: Antique Visual Journaling
The next creative arts circle includes creating a visual journal within the rich and varied pages of an antique book. Through engaging with the words as springboards for your imagination, you will transform this old text into a visual sketchbook of your feelings, ideas and meanderings. Through combining text and image, magical happenings can emerge on the pages of these beautiful pieces from history. The practice of a daily visual journal can support you and sustain you through challenging and joyous periods, grounding you in the here and now.
An assortment of antique books will be supplied.
