(FAQ) Frequently Asked Questions about – heART JOURNALING
What are heART JOURNALING classes? – They are classes where NO art experience or artistic training is necessary to have a fun creative time. heART Journaling has no rules… it’s giving yourself the gift of time, accepting that you are ENOUGH just the way you are and finding your way back to your “Portal of Creativity”! It’s a way to express heart and soul emotions with personal stories of your life using colorful paint, mark making tools, and ALL the other cool, amazing art supplies I’ve collected for years. Your creative spirit will be SOooo HAPPY seeing everything that is offered for your joyous journaling experience! I’m inviting ALL who are interested in creating a sacred creative circle making connections with others to join this class using expressive arts to honor your creative spirit.
What do you mean Portal of Creativitity? I believe heART journaling/and intuitive/process painting is therapeutic and healing. Taking time out of your busy life to just be still… giving yourself the GIFT of time… tapping into the moment of NOW… using paint, pencils, markers, etc. creates an amazing meditative flow which I call the “Portal of Creativity”. You lose ALL sense of time and you’re shocked when it’s time to clean up. heART journaling/painting begins to be addictive and you crave that feeling where you are happy, focused and engaged in what you are doing! Students often tell me that they can’t believe it’s time to stop creating when they are in that creative flow!

Are children allowed? Children are not allowed to come to weekly heART journaling classes since, journaling gives permission to let go… tapping into your “portal of creativitity” listening to the intuition of your heart and soul, expressing yourselves sharing personal information about YOUR life. If children were present, individuals would feel pressured to censor what they created and shared in our sacred creative circle. HOWEVER, children are permitted to come to Private lessons and PAINTING Parties that have been scheduled.
