Artist Nicole Salimbene leads participants in a series of writing and art exercises introducing the practice of keeping a visual journal as a tool for reflection, self-inquiry, and meditation. No prior art skills needed. This is not an art class to learn traditional representational art skills, but it is an invitation to open to your creative potential by exploring the internal and external symbols and metaphors that are guiding your life and to experience the power of art making.
Nicole has created a unique method for using the artistic process to gain clarity and mindfulness, and she has brought this approach to various academic disciplines and professional associations to enrich vocational wellness. She has led workshops in contemplative art making practices in affiliation with American University, Clark University, the Lama Foundation, The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, and Ghost Ranch.
