Sept 9th, 2019: Art & Soul: The Power of Art Journaling
An intro to art journaling, with examples and activities to deepen your journaling practice. Art journaling can be a freeing experience, one that taps into the heart of your life through gentle reflection and a safe place for personal expression. From watercolors, to acrylics, to collage, to sketches, to poetry, the means of artful expression are limitless. Come learn from local abstract artist, Mandy Thompson, as she introduces us to a variety of journaling practices, as well as gives a sneak peek into her own pages. Mandy began art journaling nearly a decade ago, as she processed grief and depression. Since then, she continues creative journaling as a private outlet for her soul, as well as a base for her creative life. She's taught art journaling in the area for years and is excited to bring this experience to GVA.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Raised in rural Georgia with pencils in hand as early as her mama can remember, Mandy has always been an artist at heart. She moved to the Georgia Coast after graduating from college in 2001, and spent 15 years offering her creativity in other arenas before becoming a professional artist.
Mandy returned to art in her mid-30s as a way to work through depression and process her emotions, and found abstract art as the medium to most fully express emotional concepts. Through Analogue: A Field Guide for the Soul, Mandy blends art and words into a format that helps others connect with their own souls. Not only does she encourage others through her work, but she works with those who are interested in using creativity to bring healing in their own lives.
She now lives in Brunswick Georgia with her husband and two beautiful daughters. She’s a member of the Glynn Visual Arts, Jekyll Island Art Association, and has a private studio downtown at the Brunswick Stewdio. You can find her work in multiple local venues and exhibits.
Price for each session is $20
