Join Dr. Kristin Baxter for a creative journaling workshop inspired by works of art in the LUAG collection. Explore a range of prompts and techniques for drawing and writing that will help you build habits to support your well-being, mindfulness, and developing a positive mindset. Discover how you can use everyday materials you have at home to create your own journal to document and track your progress. No prior experience is necessary. Have paper and pencil handy. This workshop is offered in partnership with Shanthi Project.
This event is part of our Connect & Create Series which offers a brief exploration and creative conversation around a work of art from the LUAG collection, followed by a hands-on activity and/or creative response.
