“Art Happenings* – No Artistic Ability Required”
Delacomania (Ink Blots): The Victorian Parlor Game “Blotto”
We start with a fun exercise in ‘What Do You See” then get to playing with creating our own ink blots. We then find the Gobolinks (little creatures and symbols within). If time permits we put pen to paper and create a short verse.
Neurographic Drawing: Release Past Trauma, Set Goals
NeuroArt is an artistic approach to transforming negative emotions and taking “the edges off’ of our internalized stress.
Line Illusions: Lull the Mind into Focused Calm
This easy one-line technique repeated in a pattern creates surprisingly complicated-looking results. The repetitive process is so simple and “straightforward” that it becomes hypnotic.
Pen & Ink Mandalas: Order the Chaotic Mind
With simple lines, dots and dashes balance the left and right sides of your brain with these circular symmetrical patterns. It is easy and fun to watch your personal mandala emerge onto the paper.
Hirameki: “Flash of Inspiration” (Japanese translation)
Hirameki is the colorful art of turning a random blob into something amazing, just by adding a few dots and lines.
“Release Your Genius with Creative Sparks Activities”
Each gathering starts with warmup/icebreaker activities to get the group fired up and ready to create together.
Exquisite Corpse: A game in which each participant takes turns writing or drawing on a sheet of paper, folding it to conceal his or her contribution, and then passing it to the next player for a further contribution.
Telephone Drawing: Add hilarity to the game child’s game “Telephone” with paper & pen. Just like gossip and rumors this activity always ends in something different than how it started.

“Special Group Happenings* to Help You Feel GOOD!”

The Power of a Smile
This is a truly unique offering incorporating group Laughter Yoga** and interactive demonstrations of how to protect yourself from energy vampires, zip up your energetic raincoat and balance yourself in a chaotic world. You will walk away with new tools to keep you smiling. And an added bonus – an Angel Walk/Verbal Hug segment.
Portions of this “happening*” are from Patricia’s half day workshop The Life Electric – Embracing an Energetic Life in a Stressed Out World!
** Laughter Yoga “combines laughter with yoga breathing exercises . . . It approaches laughter as a body exercise so it is easy to laugh even if you’re depressed or in a bad mood. I’ve tried it, and it works.” – Oprah Winfrey

* Happenings are when people gather in a group to have a collective experience of fun. Think the 1960s but in these cases without the drugs. :0)
