I had signed up for a first of September web based seminar with Expressive Arts Florida. Unfortunately, bad weather caused a postponement.
It’s a topic that interests me greatly. I am interested in self expression through the work of soul searching and spiritual seeking. Writing has always been a path of that work for me. Yoga and meditation are also paths I use. Lately I have been drawn to art. I had no training or courses in art all through school, but I have always doodled. I signed up for a basic drawing class last winter, took a watercolor class this summer, and have signed up for a second watercolor painting class in the fall.
Better late than never to correct a fault in my education. It was a hunger deep inside that had to be fed.
Expressive Art, as I understand it, is a bit different than a drawing or a painting class though. It seems to be more of a therapeutic technique. This article gives some background and exercises.
I have made colleges before, but had not really thought about that as anything beyond a decorative craft for notebooks and storage boxes. Hmm. Sometimes, somehow I stumble onto things without even realizing I was looking for them. I don’t know yet if I will be able to access the rescheduled seminar but I will keep myself open to new experiences.
