Creative Oxygen Bubbles: My Perspectives for the Time After this Crisis - ONLINE

Be spontaneous and let yourself be surprised! Trust your intuition, and have fun at the same time as you take care of yourself and find meaning in the current situation. You get the assignment prior to the class and will then be guided through the task through demonstrations, a group discussion and sharing to receive some feedback and suggestions. These exercises are inspired by the Creative Journal method, developed by Anne- Marie Jobin. You are not required any artistic skills and you  need only few supplies for each Zoom session.

Each of the 45-minute sessions is separate and requires its own registration. Note: Your supply list includes the assignment for each session (attached to your registration confirmation).

Fee: $25/session member, $35/session non-member
