Event Details

I found that I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.  --  Georgia O’Keefe

Illustrated Wisdom is an easy and relaxing arts adventure that involves scribbling, doodling and playing with colors in ways that:

• Access our deepest wisdom

• Clarify choices and situations

• Open new perspectives

• Allow breakthroughs

• Create peace of mind 

• Improve focus

Sandra Gould Ford has taught for over twenty-five years and found that art helps transfer feelings, insights and profound wisdom from the subconscious to our awake and logical minds. Of Illustrated Wisdom, Sandra Gould Ford says, “As we relax and let our hearts and spirits guide our hands, we reduce stress, resolve conflicts, connect with important feelings and give voice to the soul.”

Illustrated Wisdom uses arts materials like crayons, markers, paints, pencils and glitter to doodle and scribble, splash and dabble in creating unique images and special messages, the more abstract, the better.
