Magic and Metaphor: Mixed Media Conversations With Your Inner Critric.
An amazing art retreat in Lake Superior that covers deep writing and intuitive art. What will you do for five days? Join a class of creative explorers and confront your inner critic.
Full Description: Your inner critic squawks about lack and attack while you chase it out of your studio. It always returns, and you lose deep creative time patrolling the edges of your consciousness to keep the inner critic at bay.
Through deep journaling and intuitive art, this class will help you develop inner advocates with strengths and powers to challenge the inner critic to a real conversation. Maybe the inner critic has a point that’s useful. Maybe not. Now you’ll know.
You will develop a series of cards with art on one side and writing on the other. The cards can be used for brainstorming, creative discussions, idea selection and swaps. You’ll use guided visualization, deep journaling, appreciative inquiry, and spontaneous association for writing and bricollage, ink-as-paint, resist techniques, and found poetry as artwork.
You will also make Monsoon Papers, Quinn McDonald’s technique for surface decoration on sheets of paper to use as folders and envelopes for your cards.
No art experience is necessary. Journaling experience is helpful, but not required.
Cost: $425 for five days.
