Kimberly Lee, JD


SoulCollage® is a highly effective expressive arts practice for enhancing creativity and shifting our mood during challenging times. When combined with expressive writing, the impact can be even more powerful. In this workshop, we’ll receive a brief introduction to the SoulCollage® method and be guided through the collage-making process. We’ll engage with our creations through imaginative prompts, and experience several journaling techniques designed to uplift and inspire. Ample opportunity to share—if desired—will be offered. Come away feeling energized, with effective tools for your own self-care repertoire and to share with others. A background in writing or art is not required—everyone can enjoy and benefit from this session.

Materials - What to Bring

  • 5x8 piece of cardstock or cardboard
  • 7-8 pre-selected pages torn from magazines with primary images (people, animals, objects)*
  • 7-8 pre-selected pages torn from magazines with larger background scenes (nature, interiors, patterns)*
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Pen and paper (or whichever supplies are most comfortable for journaling)

*How to select these images: Sit back and have some fun flipping through magazines and tearing out pages with images that resonate with you, move you, or somehow seem to be calling out to you. Try to avoid overthinking it and simply go with what captures your attention. Don’t worry about cutting anything out—we’ll get to that in the workshop! Digital images will work as well if magazines aren’t available. Simply collect some on your computer using the process described above.
