Monday, July 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Art and Mindfulness: Get Out of Your Head and Into Making Art
Session 2: Gratitude

Location: The Village Office (2502 N Clark)
Members & guests: free.

Join us for a 3-part series designed to introduce you to using collage as a visual tool to:
– Connect with your creativity
– Explore your inner world
– Express thoughts and feelings
– Manage stress and elicit positive emotions
– Generate insights and ideas to move you forward in life

You’ll also learn mindfulness and grounding exercises to help quiet your mind and focus
on the present moment, making collage creation more spontaneous and intuitive.

Attend one session or all three!

– Materials Provided: Collage supplies such as magazines and decorative papers.
– What You’ll Do: Create a collection of images and words that hold personal meaning
and reflect your inner self.
– No Experience Needed: You don’t have to be an artist. Join us for fun, relaxation, and
the chance to bond with others through art-making. You might even discover answers to
questions you’ve been pondering!
