Art + Soul Group with Laura Vincent-Arnold
Tuesdays in November: 6:45pm-7:45pmA message about this group from Laura:
My hope is that this group will provide an opportunity to gather and collectively create with the purpose of having fun and learning about self through visual expression.This group will rotate between making personal mandalas and creating collage art. Mandala, which comes from the Sanskrit meaning "circle", will simply be to create images within a circle- a very centering practice. Collage is creating art using found images from magazines or from home. It will be inspired by Soul Collage (this method of collage work is very much about self-exploration). An example of some of the art and mandalas is pictured. For more information, call 309-523-3440 or stop by the library.
