Expressive Art Journaling

Next course date TBA

There are more fun, creative, and meaningful ways to express ourselves in our journals than by using only our words...


Expressive Art Journaling can contributes greatly to your mental and emotional health - and your physical health too!  In addition, it can be a liberating, healing, and a soul-fulfilling experience.


Inexpensive, enjoyable, and beneficial holistic self-care.

If you aren't into 'words' or don't know how or what to write in a journal - THIS Expressive Art Journaling program is for you.

And don't worry - you don't have to be an artist or a writer!

Creative Wildfire,

An Introduction to Art Journaling

“When I discovered books as a surface to receive image, color, line, shape, and words... being able to speak like this in a journal was transformational for me - like catching fire. Like a wildfire, but far kinder.”

"Once I started to study art therapy and psychology, my view of visual journaling changed... I redirected my journals toward the inner worlds of imagination and often to what was just below the surface of awareness—an implicit knowing that contains more than what can be put into words.

It also became a life-long process of learning through what is historically referred to as a reflective practice; in other words,

it became a way of using art and journaling to manifest what is just below the surface in order to deepen meaning and understanding."
