On Saturday, Sept 10, Arts & Dreams had the awesome honor of sharing an Affirmation Drawing Workshop in Washington Square Park, as participants in the Community Wellness Fair sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. We were ready for some art making fun, rain or shine.
Handy cray-pas and the very inspiring and popular Louise Hay's Power Thoughts for Teens cards.
Our sheet of affirmations. At the end of each workshop we ask everyone to read one of these affirmations out loud while looking into their own eyes in a mirror. It's powerful.
Stickers and colored pencils? Check! And a sample affirmation painting previously made by me, Laura Baran.
New York, let's do this! (That's us: Patricia Geremia and Laura Baran)
A 5 minute rain shower, Patricia started her drawing. So did Matt Green, our extra special volunteer. All photos by Patricia or Matt. He's already on his 2nd drawing here.
Oh, hello. I'm getting interviewed about Arts & Dreams. Here I'm showing a drawing of my brother Jeff. He passed away in 2000. Arts & Dreams is basically a love letter from me to him.
Check it out: I Love Myself, yo! I made this little painting to convince myself to really believe it.
The sun came out!
