About this Event

		Courage Journey - Puppet Self-Portrait Workshop image

VIEW from the Inside 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!

This art-based program fosters creativity and wellness while connecting with others online! Create art, participate in fun drama exercises, small and large group discussions, and share your artistic journey in a safe and supportive community.

The VIEW program is authentic, affirming and fun. The thoughtfully sequenced sessions will walk you through skill building, storytelling, concepts, information, and discussion. Foster confidence and self-discovery!

The facilitators are helpful and will even host open sessions for one-on-one review and special tips and tricks.

We will guide you in the construction of the puppet, using a premade mask form and various art techniques. It represents your ‘public face’, your connections to the world and your 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 special sharing event.

Designed for all ages 17+. No art or performance experience is necessary. Offered over Zoom in small groups. Basic materials will be mailed out to participants after the start of the session.

You will need:

  • A computer or tablet
  • The Zoom application. We can help you get that set up and provide guidance on using Zoom if needed
  • Ability to attend all the sessions
  • To sign a media release allowing us to photograph and video your puppet.
