THRESHOLDS: a creative journey for adults with art journaling and mixed media collage

Instructed by Jenna LaFleur

Where are you, and who are you in this season of life? Are you on the threshold of something new? Change can be full of so many emotions—from fear of the unknown to sadness, to anticipation of a new adventure.  Explore and bring light to your own season of life through creativity!   This “rubi creative retreat” incorporates art journaling, mixed media work, and reflective writing, using a guided creative process focused on your story as the canvas and collage-art as the tool, ending with a few finished art journaling pages in your very own book to take home. You will see into your own life STORY, gaining insight into who you are in this chapter of your story, and sparking imagination for what might be next.  We find our most authentic selves when we explore the natural tensions of beauty and brokenness that exist in all stories.  Come refresh, create, and experience transformation through art. 

…psst…this process is not an art technique class, it’s about your invaluable story and personal transformation through art. Whether you hear the word “creative” and say, “that’s me!” or “wish it were me,” or “that is totally not me,” this retreat will meet you where you’re at! Yes . . . it’s for YOU!
