A member of RR PDX, Keely, has started an art + recovery event taking place on Wednesdays at Taborspace. This is the perfect way to spend a Wednesday night with other folks in recovery and in place of an RR meeting, since we don’t have but one happening on this night of the week! Please click the link below for the meeting specifics on the group’s MeetUp page!
Everyone has an inner child within them who wants to play, express, splatter, and gunk up the glue stick. Let this be the place where your creative inhibitions run free and you can meet other like minded friends on their recovery journey through the therapeutic process of art making.
We will primarily focus on art journaling because I truly believe it is a powerful tool to anyone, but especially to those adjusting to sobriety and reclaiming a new life in recovery.
Art journals are your own private, portable companion. Join us as we explore and expand on our understanding of the uses and benefits of art journaling. A main theme and prompt will carry us through our art making as we create independently. Throughout history people have talked in circles while using their hands, let us bring forth this tradition while opening our hearts and minds. I think of this as a fun recovery meeting for your inner child!
Makers, artists, gardeners, chefs, mothers, and anyone who has ever caressed a colored pencil with a twinkle in your eye or danced a paintbrush across the paper as you lifted into a daydream - this group is for you!
