Virtual Community Class: Art with Marnie

November 17 @ 2:30 pm EST

“Peaceful Place” Mandalas—Join Marnie Herlands, MS, ATR-BC, LCAT, Yoga teacher, for a mindful art therapy experience! During this virtual community art class, participants will be led through a brief mindful meditation/guided visualization and then invited to create art. The art invitation will be to create a mandala using collage materials to express what brings you healing joy, comfort or peace. This can include thoughts or feelings, people, places, experiences, things you like to do or something nice someone does for you.

Mandala means circle and can represent our “inner self” and an oasis or peaceful place is a place of relief, calm or comfort. No prior art making experience needed! Just bring yourself and art supplies of your choosing.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Heavyweight white paper or any sturdy paper cut into a circle or a large paper plate
  • Pre-cut images of your choosing (from magazines, recycled greeting card covers, or on a computer and printed out; decorative papers’ words or motivational quotes, if desired
  • Glue stick or any glue that you have
  • Scissors (optional)
  • Sharpie marker (optional)

This event will take place at the AFA Teal Room: www.alzfdn.org/afatealroom.
