mappingthejourney2It’s all about you in this mixed-media workshop. Using a variety of prompts, exercises, media, techniques, images, and words, you will begin to map out the mystery that is YOU by contemplating where you have been, where you are, and where you are going.

Engage in a process of self-discovery and deep introspection as you delve into new realms, and set the direction of your intention. Experiment with a variety of materials and techniques as you cut and glue, paint and draw, layer and write to define your personal vision and get you where you want to go. Prepare to get still, get quiet, and go inside as you learn to use mapping as a powerful tool for living and dreaming.
