It’s All About the Birds! – An Art Journal Workshop
December 4, 2021, 1:00 PM - 3:30 PMFree, and open to everyone!
Art therapist, Laura Bohn leads this workshop about the importance of birds and connecting to nature. Participants will use images of birds, wings, or flying to create an art journal page. This mixed-media creation will have personal meaning for self-care.
Supply list: Bring bird imagery or related poetry about birds, wings, flight, quotes etc. Along with art supplies you prefer.
You can draw or sketch a bird for your art journal page or write about birds if you prefer poetry.
Birds are important symbols for us. For example, the eagle is a symbol of strength. Cranes are symbols of peace, good luck, and blessings.
ACA will supply basic art supplies including acrylic paint, Modge Podge, scissors, aprons, and paint brushes.
