Courage Journey – 8 week online puppet workshop
VIEW from the Inside – Courage Journey – is an award-winning program that invites you to explore your creativity in a friendly, supportive community.
In this 8-week course participants make a self-portrait-based puppet which becomes a nuanced artifact resulting in an amazing legacy project!
Together we will create art, participate in fun drama exercises, and share your story in small and whole group discussions in a safe and supportive community.
The VIEW program is authentic, affirming and fun. The thoughtfully sequenced sessions walk you through skill building, storytelling, concepts, information, and discussion. Our aim is to promote confidence, mental well-being and self-discovery!
Our facilitators are caring, considerate professionals who look forward to leading you on your unique puppet journey. With our guidance, you’ll begin by constructing your personal puppet using a pre-made mask form and a variety of art techniques.
This puppet represents many aspects of you – your ‘public face’, your connections to the world, and your inner world and memories. Next, we coach you on how to present ‘performative-reflections’ derived from your journaling and other writings. And finally, we visually archive your stories and celebrate it all in a meaningful sharing event.
Designed for all ages 17+!
