No problem! We are getting started with a drawing around- how you are feeling today.
Tell us about your check-in drawing!
I used words in different colors. I am using sharpies
It was freeing
Peace sign colored blue for peace. Flame in orange and yellow out of the top. I'm a rebel, so I went outside the lines for that. Decided on green for background.. fav color.
Circle with a heart around it and little hearts in the middle all connected. With large electric jabs on the outside. Showing that connections with people can keep out the bad stuff.
A little mountain range, going through some ups and downs. I'm at work, so just pencil and paper!
I have been feeling slightly anxious lately so I used stars and purple to kind of represent night because that is a time when you can feel anxious...but I put in some pink and yellow to represent light and life breaking though.
Heart with family, volunteer in school and happiness.
I used markers. I used hearts in the middle to show feeling loved and supported. Included lines to show feeling a little annoyed. Scribble lines to show feeling uncertain.
Thank you for sharing everyone!
the video is frozen
Start with the "What do I need hand?'
If you are feeling stuck, Taylor suggests to go with color and symbols
Let's transition to the second hand, "What can I give?"
Feel free to let us know how you are doing with this exercise here in the chat.
hard to 'draw' support. might use a pic of a bra.
I'm finding that many of mine are the same on both hands.
good point, Sara
I have to go pick up my daughter, but thank you - this was helpful. My giving hand was quite empty, but I put my voice and music at the center because it seems I can always give that and it's always received well. The rest of the hand is empty except for little tiny hearts on each fingernail - representing that when I do reach out, I try to do so with love and care.
I also have to go. Worked with highlighters and sharpies for color, but it worked. I appreciate this opportunity. This has helped. Inspiring. I might get out my art box and canvas this weekend. <3 and peace. This. was. awesome.
Thank you so much! This was wonderful!
THank you so much. It was great and helpful.
