"Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men."Colossians 3:23


Self Exploration Collage/Assemblage Online Group Art Project-Journal Prompt #1

Gather up your Art Journal or Notebook for this part of the Project.

Purpose of this assignment is to
Discover Who You Are by:

* confronting pain/embracing joy
* reflecting on your past experiences
* exploring who you are/ what you tell other people about yourself
* stories I tell myself
* exploring significant people and events
* what is important to me
* examining my strengths and weaknesses
* discovering areas of personal growth
* core values

Now ask yourself these questions and write them down, unedited, in your own journal.  Use descriptive Adjectives and limit yourself to 5-15 minutes of writing time.


Where did I come from?
Who is my family?
What is most important to me?
What roles do I play?
The stories and myths about myself
My favorite foods, movies, music
Personality traits

After you have completed this exercise collect objects that can visually represent what you have discovered.  We will use those objects later on in our collage/assemblage art.

A Materials Lists will be in the next Blog Posts.

HELPFUL HINTS:  Give string writing a try.  To use this method continuously write without stopping to edit your thoughts or grammar. If you draw a blank, write something like, I do not know what to write so I am writing this etc... until the next idea comes to you.  

UR-TURN:  Feel free to share one thing you learned from completing this exercise.

Until Next Time.

Many Blessings,
