Are you stepping into a new threshold in your life story? Change can be full of so many

emotions—from fear of the unknown to sadness, to anticipation of a new adventure.

THRESHOLD: doorway, entrance, gateway, start, beginning, brink, verge, opening, dawn.

We are always facing something new in our lives, a transition of some sort, a change, a

decision we are facing, a new reality. So what is it that is new, unknown, beginning in this

chapter of your life story that you are about to enter, have just entered, are finding yourself

in the midst of having to face? Could be light or could be dark—thresholds can be either.

your story is the canvas and art is the tool

busyness, search for clarity in the middle too much responsibility, beginnings of a new

special relationship, coping with the end of a relationship, dealing with a health

concern, etc.] Our life stories are constantly in motion . . . there is always a new

threshold appearing on the horizon. Be part of this creative, self-exploration journey

for adults complete with art journaling and mixed media collage, leaving with 3

beautifully finished art journaling pages. Welcome all who don’t see themselves as

creative . . . as well as all who do!

Change can be full of so many emotions—from fear of the unknown to sadness, to anticipation of a

creative process focused on your story as the canvas and collage-art as the tool, ending with a few

finished art journaling pages in your very own book to take home. You will see into your own life

STORY, gaining insight into who you are in this chapter of your story, and sparking imagination for

what might be next. We find our most authentic selves when we explore the natural tensions of

beauty and brokenness that exist in all stories. Come refresh, create, and experience transformation through art.
