July/s Prompt: Image of a Holiday
“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.

Let freedom ring in your self-expression of this holiday memory!
A Happy 4th to All!
