June’s Prompt:   Shout-out to Summer!

 

“I found that I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way—things I had no words for.”  —Georgia O’Keeffe

Welcome to DHOH’s art journaling initiative!  With 2020 in the rearview mirror, it is time for a little ‘RR’— Reflection and Re-direction— to help us enjoy the freshness of each new month in 2021 and beyond.

There are many benefits associated with stretching one’s creative muscles.  Art journaling’s self-directed process promotes a freedom to explore that may improve clarity—through observation and organization of thought, empower self-expression, reduce daily stress, nurture growth and greater self-awareness, inspire self-confidence, and renew joy in acts of discovery and accomplishment without fear of failure or judgment.

Look forward each month to exercising creativity through a new art journal prompt.  Our self-paced activities are built with the flexibility to accommodate materials, time, and focus.  With each prompt you will have the option to dive in for a deep stretch or take a lighter approach as time or energy level dictates—you are in control. Do with purpose what serves your needs best.

June’s Journal Activity

June brings the official arrival of summer!  We’re celebrating with a Shout-out to Summer journal entry.

 

Here are 2 prompt suggestions to get you started.  Pick one (or both if you’re feeling ambitious) and let your creative expression flow onto the page.

 

  1. What does summer mean to you? Journal the word “summer” across a page and draw/paint/doodle/collage all your favorite things you associate with the summertime season!

 

  1. Write a Summer Haiku: Haikus are short, simple poems of 3 lines (5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second, then 5 syllables in the third) – write one about summertime and illustrate it.

 

 

Wishing you joy each day of summer!
