THE HERO’S JOURNEY: Telling our story through collage / mixed media and journaling


With teaching artist Alison Tomei

This workshop focused on creating a personal mythology and a visual representation of that story through symbolism and imagery. It explored common symbols and their meanings, completed free writing prompts, and explored the concept of the hero’s journey as it pertains to 2020 and what participants experienced as well as how it transformed their lives or some aspect of themselves.
The medium was collage mostly from magazines, printed images or even participants own photos. The project was also open to any other mixed media participants wanted to add to their collage. The workshop also completed short journal prompts to assist in the creative process.
