Draw your furry best friend and explore art journaling in this class led by Atlantic Center for the Arts Community Artist Bethany Bennett. In this session, you’re invited to honor the special place in your heart held by your favorite pet. Did you have a beloved childhood dog? Or a cat that keeps you company these days? Maybe you’ve always loved horses. Bring along a photo or two of your favorite animals and celebrate the role these special creatures play in our Emotional Wellbeing. Not an animal lover? Not a problem! This program is open to all and will include guidance on a variety of topics for art journaling.
The goal of art journaling is to reduce stress and promote relaxation by increasing participants’ ability to play, experiment and gain self-guided insight and understanding of one’s own emotions. Added benefits can include self-growth, discovery, and joy through visual storytelling in a supportive group environment.
This program is presented by Bethany Bennett and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in collaboration with Atlantic Center for the Arts.
