Creative Journaling: Colour Your World
with Kathie MacDuff
In Creative Journaling, a theme is presented and participants use words, images and a variety of mixed media techniques to unearth, explore and record their responses, thoughts and emotions. This program unites participants in hope, support and camaraderie as they journey towards creativity and spirit. In this safe creative space, negativity is banished, leaving only room for meaningful connection, self-expression and healing.

Let’s open the door and reacquaint ourselves with colour. Many of us were taught that the sky is blue, the sun is yellow and no! Leaves are NOT purple! But they can be when seen in the warm glow we call summer. Our parents and teachers taught us the culturally agreed upon object colours and our ‘sensitives’ to how colour can be seen were discouraged. Let’s see if we can change that!
