Journal your Way OUT of Covid with paint!

Journal your Way OUT of Covid with paint!



(The Art of Getting Unstuck)

based on book by Diane Barry 


I don’t need to tell you that since March 2020 we have been living through and with unusual  times. It has however given us lots of time for self reflection and awareness of our ability to be with and in ourselves. Taking the time to reflect on this past year as we start to move out of isolation (it’s going to come sooner or later) and making meaning out of it all can offer us the chance to look back and  gather our thoughts and insights into what we have learned about ourselves through all of this. Looking ahead what will we take away with us? How has it shaped us? 


Join me in creating a visual journal of your COVID journey (I know no one wants to hear that word anymore)! From your initial reactions to where you want to go from here. This virtual course uses guided questions to help you walk through your journey. Based on the book Painting Yourself Out of a Corner; The Art of Getting Unstuck by Barbara Diane Barry join me for eight weekly two hour virtual journaling sessions using intuitive exercises and basic  drawing/painting tools (no artistic talent needed) to express yourself. This is not a class designed to teach drawing skills but rather to use lines, dots and simple renderings to help you uncover what you hold inside.   Create your own visual journal of the joys, fears, anger, love, in essence all, that you have experienced to give you some clarity, respite and perspective on your own personal journey through this past year. This course is limited to 10 as the exchange of your thoughts and feelings, should you choose to share them, contributes to making meaning of your experiences and that us others. This may have been a time of isolation but it has highlighted more than ever our need to be in community.



This is a visual approach to journaling that teaches you how to let go of expected results and dive into your visual bank of images to develop an intuitive approach to problem solving. Simple techniques will get you unstuck by building one image onto another to arrive at, often times, surprising revelations. Whether you are in a creative field or not this method is something that many adopt as a daily practice for meditative and relaxation purposes as well as using as a reference much like a written journal. The approach will push your boundaries of what it is to work intuitively and really 'look' at the images that emerge.




Most Classes are designed for beginner and intermediate students. Classes are paced as an average - lots of individual attention is given to each student in my classes. I strive to push those who are more advance and encourage those who are new.  Please double check description to match for best level.
