The workshops, run over two sessions are being facilitated by Scarlet Daly, who is an educator and facilitator, with experience in teaching music and art. The workshop takes inspiration from a number of Art Therapy classes Scarlet has undertaken with Art Therapist, Amanda Scott.
Scarlet has been a long time volunteer for PGDC and is keen to share her love of art, colour, beautiful materials and textures with our kids so that they can find a way to explore creative art journalling.
Workshops are open to all PGDC kids, including siblings.
Creative art journalling creates a deeper sense of self-awareness, empowers us, inspires us, encourages us, and can move us in powerful ways.
Art journaling can be a fun way of engaging in self-care while tapping into your creative side and you don’t even need to know how to draw. Some of the benefits to art journaling are:
- It’s fun
- It’s a form of self-care
- It allows you to explore your feelings
- It enables you to review life experiences
- It helps you plan or envision goals
- It further develops creativity
- It provides you with some health/stress benefits [such as: reducing your heart rate, increasing serotonin flow and decreasing stress responses]
All participants need to attend both sessions. The first session deals with the construction and creation of their journal, the second session delves into creative art journalling. Participants will get to take their journal home at the end of the second session. Please consider whether you can commit to both sessions before signing up.
