Creative Journaling: The Creative Urge
with Kathie MacDuff
IN CREATIVE JOURNALING, A THEME IS PRESENTED to participants who use words, images, and a variety of mixed media techniques to unearth, explore, and record their responses, thoughts, and emotions.
This program unites participants in hope, support, and camaraderie as they journey towards creativity and spirit.
In this safe creative space negativity is banished, leaving only room for meaningful connection, self-expression, and healing.
“Art does not reproduce what we see. It makes us see.” – Paul Klee
If we are to be true to our nature, then our God-given creativity would be apparent to all. Creativity calls to us but most times our response seems half-hearted: we feel the desire but inspiration seems to have vanished.
Let’s explore this unwelcomed but all too common occurrence and see what can be done.
