Expressive Arts Café

As the newest project launched in June 2020, the virtual Expressive Arts Café is a series of Zoom meetings featuring different topics ranging from poetry to musical interpretations, from vision boards to handmade crafts. You’ll be served espresso first every visit – a two-minute journaling response that you may or may not share. The Daily Special follows. We will always prepare you for your dining experience with knowledge of the planned workshop and theme. Our workshops include art-journaling, sharing an open mic, storytelling and more. Finally, before you exit, we’ll leave you with a little mint of gratitude to carry you through the rest of your day. All courteous friends are welcome, and creativity is not required! Email [email protected] to get on our notice list!

Hello and welcome! Happy November and Happy Native American Heritage Month. As the weather turns colder and we withdraw more into our homes, the Environmental Dimension of our mental wellness moves into focus. This month’s artistic Café guest, actor/filmmaker/creative and Substance Use Counseling Student, Bridget McKevitt tells her story of arts and healing in relation to her home environment. She’s calling her presentation, “Move a Muscle, Change a Thought.” See Bridget and her bio below. In addition, we will respond with an art-journaling and sharing session, where we can think about “the courage to change that is granted in action” or any other reaction you would like to art-journal at that time. You can find a list of suggested supplies below also.

So join us this Monday, November 20th at 6 p.m. ET for our “Move a Muscle, Change a Thought” Art-Journaling Café with our artistic guest, Bridget McKevitt. You won’t want to miss this one. We hope to see you, and don’t forget to bring your favorite Café beverages because we are the Café just around the corner, getting to know you better 😊. As always, I’m your host Jacquese. Take care, be well and goodbye!
