The Painting Journal: July 10, 2010. Registration by July 5

The Painting Journal

taught by Julie Russell

The Painting Journal Workshop is for those who seek an imaginative, colorful, surprise-filled vehicle for transformation, and who enjoy laughing and lightheartedness. No previous art experience is needed to begin your own journey into "wholeness" through the everyday.

Julie will share her journals and techniques for developing your own unique painting journal. She invites you to become an active creator, exploring new possibilities in perception, and growing toward the self-empowered being you were intended to be.

You will be guided in tracking and interpreting dreams, allowing vision for your life and holding it, expressing feelings, and daring to embrace the tigers along the way. Later, revisiting the journal and seeing with fresh eyes the ordinary made extraordinary, you'll experience your own reflection as dear friend -- returning, remembered, loved.
