“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.”

– Viktor E Frank

What kinds of stories are you telling yourself?  Using the medium of collage, uncover your story through image and metaphor.  Collage offers a wonderful opportunity to explore and try out new ways of putting things together to create your own unique art, using a variety of different materials which you can gather from many places and glue down onto bristol board (a strong thin sort of cardboard).  Tap into your creativity and playfulness in this six week course.  You may surprise yourself with what you create.  There will be opportunities to share art creations and insights.  We will work with themes from stories and poems and use some mindfulness practices to still the mind and connect within.

Materials You Will Need:

  • 4 sheets of bristol board to be used as the supporting surface now which to glue/attach your other materials (bristol board is available at the dollar store fin a variety of colours for a $1/sheet)
