Birds As Metaphor – an art journaling workshop

February 24, 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Humans have always been fascinated with birds.  The behavior of birds can represent the soul, freedom, or relate to us in many personal ways. They can be warnings about the health of our environment, or just be fascinating to watch. Some birds are loners like the Great Blue Heron, while others always stay in flocks. In this art journaling workshop we will explore the bird of your choosing and the symbols and metaphors that relate to you and your stories.  Please bring images (magazine or print) of a bird/birds that you relate to.

No experience necessary. All supplies provided.
Limited to 12 participants
Supported by the City of New Smyrna Beach Leisure Services
