Visual Journaling Techiques

Three simple ways to get background, detail and layers that are quick and easy

This free introductory mini-course shares three, short, process videos demonstrating simple materials and techniques to use in intuitive, visual journaling. The first is with fluid craft acrylic paints and sponges. The second uses oil or wax based drawing media to draw in details. The final one utilizes water soluble drawing media that allows you to quickly fill in areas and add layers of color.

This mini-course is a great introduction to simple techniques that you can then use in the Drawing from the Unconscious course to explore your inner wisdom. So enjoy the process and have fun experimenting.

Remember, this is NOT about being an artist (even though artists can get a lot out of it too!). It is about using the right side of your brain to access deeper intuition and guidance through color, shape, line and personal symbols.

I have been in the arts my entire life and I have used visual journaling for over 15 years as a rich source of healing and guidance. I feel so impressed by its ability to discover areas of new growth and healing where other processes could not seem to go. I have also spent the last decade training and working in the healing arts focusing on creative expression and conscious awakening. I have a MA in Counseling from Southwestern College in Santa Fe, NM, with a specialization in Art Therapy, and a degree in Somatic Polarity from New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts. I also have additional training in trauma therapies including basic EMDR and advanced certification in Brainspotting™. Creative Inquiry weaves this all together into a comprehensive way to access your own inner wisdom.
