Join Magpie’s Nest Community Art Space and the Vancouver Public Library to create uplifting messages to remind ourselves and others that we are all capable, beautiful, and important people.
Taking inspiration from craftivism and Betsy Greer’s You Are So Beautiful Project, we will be art journaling to help change the messages we see, hear, and tell ourselves.
We live in a world surrounded by media, news, and social connections that often leave us feeling empty, unaccomplished, unfulfilled, and not worthy. Every day we have to fight to remember that we are enough just as we are, we are beautiful just as we are. Some days, though, we forget.
Art journaling is a creative process for people to record their stories, feelings and ideas—to remind ourselves and others that we are wonderful, exactly as we are.
Sessions are free and open to anyone to attend—whether you’ve never made an art journal or are a seasoned journaler. Materials and supplies will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own art journals to work on as well.
Fall Sessions: September 13, October 11, November 22, & December 13 | 6:30–8:30 pm | VPL Hastings Branch, 2674 East Hastings Street
