Expressive Arts course this week...

My tree - the sacred oaks and a quote from my writing written on bark "I once knew if they were black oak, red oak, white oak...maybe one of each...they merged together as though they were one being." Taken from a longer story I wrote.
"Silly Goat" my finger-pointing, sharp-tongued Inner Critic who I also wrote about.
Pastel drawing after a guided visualization which was also explored in writing afterwards.
This drawing was my Inner Landscape on the last day of class which also had a story I wrote about staying balanced by walking on the beach, not high up in the sky on the mountaintops or in the watery depths down low.


I really enjoyed being a student again this week at Fleming College HSTA taking the course "Wording Liminal Space" taught by Gili Haimovich. It really was an amazing week long expressive arts creative writing course. Writing exercises intertwined with visual art, sculpture and movement! I am really looking forward to using what I've experienced and learned to enrich workshops I teach and when working with clients. Here are some photos of some of the visual work I did.

Amulet & Earring Sets

This is an example of the stone amulet and earring sets I've been working on. Shown here are white alabaster doves. I have also made phoenix, fish and chrysalis ones that I'm about to put the sterling silver earring attachments on. They will be available soon at Stone Tree Studio near Dorset and the Bohemian Cafe & Gallery in Bracebridge. Happy Mothers Day Weekend!
