Art Journalling workshops 

I have been very excited about running some journalling work shops There are opportunities for me to work with counsellors at work. It was funny I was researching images/ colour/ emotions / lines and I thought ‘hello’ abstract expressionism and art teaching . I found a couple of websites that looked interesting http://foxboroarttherapy.com/what-is-creative-self-care/ http://www.dentonisd.org/cms/lib/TX21000245/Centricity/Domain/932/1Abstract%20Expressionism.pdf I started thinking about resources that I could use as examples. I produced a series of doodles that represent me in various emotional states – I wanted to make things that were cheap and cheerful and not expensive for counsellors who don’t have lots of art equipment at hand I used a small mandala as a metaphor for me and put the circle Inside a square so that I could use the it as a boundary. This allows a space around the circle and gives a sense of how large or small the mandala is depending on how I feel – it also gives scope to be broken or me feeling larger than the box
