Sometimes the accumulated mental and physical stress can get so overwhelming that it is hard to know how to deal with it all without dissolving into a puddle of anxiety. Keeping a journal can help you create order out of chaos when your world feels like it is falling apart. It can help you to keep track of and work through both physical and mental symptoms. It can help you organize and keep track of any personal or professional projects you may be working on. Daily journaling can help you to keep excess thoughts and worries from overwhelming you and help you to discover your physically and emotionally healthy and authentic self. In this class on Journaling for Total Health & Wellness, your instructor, Stephanie Garrity, will walk you through the various types and styles of journaling to help you find the kind that is best suited to you and your needs. Bring a set of colored pens (minimum four different colors). Blank journals will be provided.

In this class each artist will be working on one large abstract painting. It can be one single stretched canvas, or made up of a series of canvases hung together as one piece. The course will take you from planning your original concept, through preparatory sketches and drawings. Then you will stretch either a single large canvas (or canvases), and begin painting in your medium of choice. You will sustain the painting for the remaining duration of the 10 week course. The size of your piece is up to you. But fair warning: part of the challenge of the class is figuring out how big to work, and how to work big when you have a limited budget, studio space, materials, and equipment. We’ll strategize about ways to execute, hang, store, and transport larger paintings, too. It is possible to work large… if we put our heads together and work smart! Materials list available.
