AFA Teal Room: Art with Marnie

Art with Marnie
Friday, April 15,2022
Join Marnie Herlands, MS, ATR-BC, LCAT, for a virtual art therapy session!
You will be led through a brief mindful breathing exercise and then create art centered on a color that you are drawn to.
Colors have universal meanings, which many of us may recognize, and varied meanings for each person, too. For example, blue is a calming color and red is often associated with intense emotions such as love or affection.
In this class, we will create a collage using magazine images, stickers, decorative paper, and a drawing or painting that evokes a chosen feeling, experience, or intention through color. Participants are encouraged to think about the color or color scheme that they choose to work with and why they chose that color!
No prior art making experience is needed. Just bring yourself and choose from the supplies listed below.
Please have available any of the supplies below that you would like to work with:
- Sturdy white paper, colorful construction or poster paper
- Decorative paper
- Scissors (optional)
- Pastels, watercolor paints, water in a container & paper towels
- Markers, colored pencils, pastels, or any other drawing materials of your choosing
- A round plate as a tracer if you would like to create a mandala
