Registration is closed.

Join in a communal healing workshop with the purpose of introducing mindfulness practice through collage art as a method of awareness, self-expression, and connection with others through shared artmaking. We will engage together in an uplifting space to check in with ourselves, release inner stress, and create unique artworks to express and integrate our emotions, thoughts, and senses in the present moment. We will journal and reflect on our experiences through the visual language of collage and foster acceptance, empathy, and synchronicity by sharing pieces of ourselves with others through expressionistic collage.
