807CACWA: Honoring Moments of Our Lives | Expressive Arts Workshop
Julia Considine and Pat Morrison
As part of the Corey Anne Celebration of Women in the Arts, Julia and Pat will be facilitating the community that gathers in meditation and creative expression. The workshop includes having participants create special vessels or books for harboring words, thoughts or stories crafted during the afternoon that honor, describe or celebrate a special time or times in their lives.
So, treat yourself to an afternoon of non-judgmental expressive arts and creative expression. Open to any level of expertise! Come and take time to relax, have fun, play, reflect, create. Please dress comfortably.
A variety of supplies and materials will be provided. Many examples will be displayed for inspiration.
***Participants are invited (but not required) to bring the following items:
– Personal favorite watercolors, colored pencils, or writing pens (sharpie, calligraphy, etc).
– A small object, beads, charm, photograph or memento that trigger memories or symbolizes who or what you want to remember.
Anything can be used for embellishment in your personal creation.

Julia is a Sufi teacher, associate instructor of qigong and holds a master’s degree in public health from UNC Chapel Hill. Julia teaches at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College and lives in the mountains near Asheville, NC with her husband and children.
