How can you build a better relationship with change in your life? Change is inevitable, so working on our relationship to change can improve our overall well-being. How can we cultivate ways to stay fluid, connected, accepting, and balanced, even in the face of unexpected or unwanted change? We will explore this through the use of color, found images, breath, and wordplay, using altered book techniques. Please join us in opening possibilities through art-making, and see what you can discover. In addition to the materials listed below, please bring a book you can alter by creating art in it. The bigger, the better, and hard-bound is best (not paperback).
Led by Andrea Werbalowsky Marino, M.A. Mental Health Counseling/Expressive Arts Therapy
