The earth is turning and we are entering a new season. In this time of new beginnings, take the time to open the window to your creative side! In this 6-week class cycle, we will explore, in an open expressive arts studio, uninhibited art-making and self-reflection on the theme of beginnings and forgiveness. JourneyWorks is a safe space, free of criticism, providing you with a creative environment to access your inner wisdom and explore and expand your intuition. No prior art or writing experience necessary – just a willingness to explore and jump into your creative process. We will begin each week with a simple orientation, followed by a shared exploration of themes that are resonate now in our lives, then time for you to independently explore the studio through movement, writing, music making, drawing, painting, and simple sculpture materials. We will finish by coming back to the circle to share our experiences. Support and guidance is available throughout. $25 per session. Registration Required.

Playback Theatre: Storytelling in Action.

Oct. 21; 10-4:30

Location: JourneyWorks

Led by: Jennie

Playback theatre is a form of interactive, improvisational theatre that invites the audience or group members to tell stories from their lives. Through the Playback form, a person’s story is told and acted for them in the context of healing, community building social justice and shared experience. These stories come magically alive through music, movement, action and dialogue. This artistic and aesthetic response strives to elevate and unite people in a place where the heart matters most.

In this one day workshop, participants will learn the basic forms, history and applications of Playback Theatre using our own personal moments as a springboard for creative action.

An ongoing company may be formed afterward with interested group participants. $50. Registration Required.
