Finding Our Voices Facilitated Healing Collage Class

Thank you to Wendy Carter for facilitating the workshop in June. The group members used a stream-of-consciousness uncensored approach to collecting words and images for their "vision boards." Joyce Aubrey used this workshop to illustrate in images the many women and men who can benefit from healing art activities.  FOV co-founder Lynn C. Tolson says that collage is "selecting apparently disparate pieces to create a new theme and unified whole." Here is how Wikipedia defines collage

Since this is a free,  popular workshop, Finding Our Voices will no doubt have it again soon!

  1. Wendy, that is such a good photo of you holding up your collages and sharing them with the group. We got a lot of processing done while cutting and gluing. Thank you!
