Moffett – Thursdays, Jan 6 – Feb 10, 6:30-8pm (In-Person)
This course invites you to make space for cultivating self-compassion through form of art journaling. Together, we will experiment with various collage, mark-making, and image transfer techniques, as well as free writing and blackout poetry. Using gel pens, ink, gouache, acrylics, stickers, image transfers, washi tape, and old magazines, this course invites you to create an analogue, tactile record of your life. Committing to a daily art journaling practice is a way to ignite creativity, express joy, engage in play, and connect to what Dr. Kristin Neff refers to as the three components of self-compassion: self-kindness, mindfulness, and common humanity. Journal and starter art supply kit are available for purchase from instructor.
No writing or art experience necessary.
Jill Moffett is a mixed media artist, poet, and recovering academic. Mixed media artist, devotee of all things analogue, and the original cut and paste. She uses vintage photographs, thrifted books, pop culture imagery, embroidery, and all varieties of mark-making tools to tell new stories.
