Color archetypes is a spiritual-artistic method to identify and understand the source of energies available to us from the day we were born – core energy, connection energy, and spiritual energy.
These three energies, inherent parts of us, navigate and shape our lives. Understanding them will help us live better, happier, and more fulfilling lives.
Art Journaling is an art activity within a personal journal. Another name for this activity can be Visual journaling, art diary etc.
For many years, artists have developed their artistic ideas in a journal and called this a sketchbook. Creating in a format of a journal has begun to develop as another language of art that anyone can do, without learning any complicated techniques, in the last thirty years.
Some artists in the United States and Europe have begun to teach the unique way they create within a diary to allow freedom, creativity and un judgmatical behaviour.
Soul Pages is a special method of visual-art journaling that I developed in the last 8 years and its main idea is the focus of our inner development and the connection to the archetype of the inner artist.
Art Journaling basic concepts
- The use of mix media techniques – any combination of materials and techniques is acceptable
- It’s not about the outcome- the process itself is important.
- It’s a form of self-care art so usually it incorporates writing
- We use meditative techniques such as doodling and collage
- We create in a bound journal
- We use layers of different materials and techniques that expose different meanings
- We can use prompts to create meaning in our spread
- Freedom, joy and play
- There are lots of different approaches of teaching, but usually they either teach art techniques or teach transformation.
