Moving through Change and Loss with a Creative Notebook Practice, October 26 – November 16

October 26, 2021 | 5:30pm - 7:00pm

In this 4-session, online engagement class, you will be guided and inspired to develop your own creative notebook practice dedicated to processing emotions related to change and loss. With the individual and collective changes and losses sustained throughout the past year, we will explore how the making of expressive art forms can support the integration of difficult life experiences and facilitate communication both with and beyond words. We will see how self-compassion can extend to compassion for others and how images can support the meaning we seek in stories and words.

In each session, a new mixed media art technique will be demonstrated as inspiration for your own spontaneous work using the materials you have gathered. Between sessions, you will be provided with written and visual inspiration drawn from other artists and creative prompts to start your own written and mixed media expressions. Finally, an important component of our time together will be sharing our work and our experience of the creative process in a safe and supportive way.

Instructor: Lisa Chu, MD, is a multidisciplinary artist, performance creator, and SoulBodyMind life coach. She enjoys encouraging people of all ages to recognize and explore their own creative potential, which she herself has explored through research and practice at the intersection of expressive arts and healing for the past decade and performing arts and teaching for the past three decades.

Class details are subject to change.
