Creating with torn paper is very therapeutic and not only that, what you create is something like no other. So whether you make a bunch of colored paper by painting, use the magazines as if they were colored paper pads, use wrapping paper scraps, or just a combination of all, you can make a project that will give you a chance to create art simply. The process of tearing the paper versus cutting makes you let go of detail and concentrate on what you want the image to say. And not only that! It’s fun!

So let’s get started: Here’s our themes
Remembering Laughter – “Always find a reason to laugh, it may not add years to your life but will add life to your years.” When was the last time you had a really good laugh? What was the experience like? Do you know that laughter affects our whole body internally as well as the outward physical movement? So laughter is a feeling that makes us come alive. Let’s see where this takes you?
Family of Origin – “The bond that links the true family, is not one of blood but respect and joy in each other’s life.” We are born into a family that already has a form without us and as we enter, we find ourselves in a position or title that stays with us throughout our lives. We are going to explore that title and how it shaped our being.
Music in my Soul – “Turn up the volume, close your eyes, and let the music soothe your soul.” For this workshop you will be taking your most favorite music and letting it flow through you to discover what emotions are tickled through the rhythm, beat, and words. How does it make you feel, why, and what images come up when you listen?
Sanctuary – “Sanctuary on a personal level is where we perform the job of taking care of our souls.” As we have been put in locked down mode, we can only watch what is outside our windows and maybe we dream of that place where we feel the most comfortable. This is the place we want to keep so we can go there anytime we need.
The Vulnerable Child – “When we were children, we used to think that when we grew up we would no longer be vulnerable, but to grow up means we accept vulnerability.” When do we feel the most vulnerable? Are there triggers that we need to be aware of? We find ourselves needing to go someplace safe and
Relationships – “A true relationship is with someone who accepts your past, supports your present, and encourages your future.” We will be looking at the relationships we have and how we hope some of them can be changed. Finding a way to protect yourself from those who we need space from and a way to bring others closer will help us feel more secure in our relationships.
