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 ean@naminj.org to get on our notice list!

The Daily Special: Mindful Art-Guided Meditation with Micah

Monday, April 19 at 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. ET

This month’s café will feature another artistic guest. Mindfulness teacher Micah will lead us in a guided meditation and give insight on mindfulness and creativity. In addition, we’ll have an art-journaling workshop in the café with prompts. So be sure to bring an affirmation and/or a quote you’re fond of. (The suggested materials are below.) As always, if you don’t have the time to get materials, come anyway, we’ll figure it out with paper and pen.

We’re the café just around the corner and we’ll get to know you’re name.

Materials:
Paper/Pen/Scissors
Glue stick/Paints
Collage materials (cloth, magazines, construction paper, etc.)
or anything else you can think of
