Let's add some tools to your teens self-care toolbox.

Let's face it. This pandemic has wrought havoc on our young people.Anxiety in teens is at an all time high. Online learning, separation from their peers, worry about the future are all eroding our teens mental health. Art journaling is a creative and expressive way to sort through your thoughts and feelings and a valuable tool for your self-care toolbox. 

Through writing, painting, and collage

Teens will create a record of their feelings and experiences while learning a valuable coping skill that can last them their whole lives. We will meet everyday for 5 days and spend 2 hours creating in our journals. Through creativity and sharing, teens will learn how art journaling can help them label and address their feelings. Art journals are a safe place to put your feelings where you can safely express yourself without the pressure of having to share until you are ready. This is a no-rules, can't do it wrong art class where all levels of art experience are welcome.

Perfectionism, fear of making a mistake, self-criticism, and judgement are just a few of the things our teens are facing that can impact their happiness

This class is a safe space to try, explore, allow, let down your guard, and learn to be gentle with yourself. One of the most helpful exercises we do at art journaling is write, and then cover up what we wrote so know one can ever read it if we don't want them to. This part alone is one of the biggest benefits of art journaling-giving people a safe place to write.

What teens will get out of it:

  • a fun way of expressing themselves
  • find out that it's okay to have fun and make art
  • an new tool for their mental health toolbox
  • in this camp we are going to focus on expressing and creating
  • this is a no-mistake, can't do it wrong, forgive ourselves and love what we do camp

The goal of this class is to provide teens with the skills to incorporate art journaling as a coping support in their mental health.

This was my first-time art journaling. I used to keep a journal when I was in high school (years ago), then my sister found it and read it, Art journaling is interesting, the message you write is hidden in the artwork... It was fun to play with colors and images, no artistic experience was required and I learned new things about art mediums, textures, color combinations. Anna, thank you for sharing your tips and techniques.

Art Journaling with Anna has changed my life! I love the process involved in creating each page. Transforming thoughts into Art and learning not to judge my work has brought me great joy! I've never been one to write in a journal...but THIS!! This is it for me! I am such a visual person so I get so excited at the idea of "making something".
