Wish something like this would fly in the States. Unfortunately, not enough of the literate have discretionary income.
Still I'm slowly building momentum to offer something similar in Portland for free. If I can work anywhere, it's Portal Land.

So...you aren't in control even when you're your own boss.
Maybe it's a matter of degree.

I never knew horror could be so beautiful.
P175 from To Charles Fort, with Love
The mind exists only in a moment, always, a single flickering moment, remembered or actual, dreaming or awake or something between the two, the precious, treacherous illusion of Present floundering in the crack between Past and Future.

With DVD. How fun. Traci shows how fun art can be if you just Go For It. She's obviously not overthinking. It's clearly about the process. What is she thinking while she's playing with color, balance and form. It's not about a "marketable" finished product. It's about the experience. I love the new book arts movement. Books as a personal art form have entered the mainstream.
Bunkers' visual journaling is an excellent call to arms for silencing the inner critic so we can hear the soft whisper of our own creativity so often drowned out by commercial media.
Let the play begin. Even grownups need to color, cut & paste. I've been doing altered books and collage for about 12 years and am only recently beginning to understand the therapeutic benefits of art as a way to self awareness.
Good introduction to the world of art therapy.
