There's lots happening in the amazing world of Art Journaling!
This is an old art form that is making a comeback due to its healing and restorative properties! There are ongoing workshops so please let me know if you can join in the fun.

ART JOURNALING UPDATE
Thanks to Colleen, Katherine, Sally and Susan who came out to play with me at my new Art Journaling group on Saturday. They are members of my new Creativity Matters Meetup group at www.meetup.com
One way to begin an art journal if the idea is new to you, is to define your intention. What do you need to do next? Where is your life taking you? Simply find some words and pictures or create your your own, then choose a few amazing art materials and go from there.
Art Increases Brain Connectivity and Plasticity
DID YOU KNOW?
Every time you engage in a new or complex activity, your brain creates new connections between brain cells. Your brain’s ability to grow connections and change throughout your lifetime is called brain plasticity or neuroplasticity.
Creating art stimulates communication between various parts of the brain. In this way, creating art has been proven to increase psychological resilience and resistance to stress. Plus - it just feels good!
Thanks so much to Holly Hall for hosting a fun evening at her home. 'Wine and Design' was a great success!
Thanks to the staff at Fionn MacCool, Guelph, for great service and for providing a perfect room for us!

Are you looking for a social gathering that is unique?
Have fun with a group of friends or colleagues at a local pub or restaurant, or perhaps an art party in your own home?
Collage is so easy, and everyone goes home with an original piece of art. No two are ever alike.
Do you have some favourite paper dinner napkins to spare? Paper napkins or serviettes are a great way to start! Simply remove the top layer and create a collage with them! Get inspired! Get creative!

Everyone was busy, but relaxed at ART NIGHT. Refreshments were provided and a good time was had by all!
There's nothing quite like an Art Party to get to know your neighbours!
