“Trust the Journey”

Creative Art Journaling Weekend Workshop

Lismore, Scotland.

Creative Art Journal Course with daily teaching by Art Mediator/therapist Trine Pettigrew.



23/09/2013 -27/09/2013

As a therapist and Art teacher, I have a special interest in Creative Mental Wellness.

My goal is to inspire others to reinvent or find hidden resources and creative strength, through creative guidance at my workshops and self-awareness groups.

I come into contact with too many people, who have lost their focus in life and who can’t find their personal goals. People who need guidance and inspiration to re-invent their “Point of Interest” and thereby  be able to create a path for better Mental Wellness and a happy existence.

”Trust the Journey”

Creative Art Journaling  Weekend Workshop on the Isle of Lismore, Scotland.

This workshop will focus on exploring our creativity and self understanding – on the path to Mental Wellness -through Creative Art Journaling and Mixed Media techniques. Nature will play a huge part in our 3 day workshop. The Isle of Lismore is not only a beautiful source of inspiration, but also the perfect backdrop for a three day Timeout.

We will spend the weekend working on our Art Journals, where I shall guide you through the “5 Life Tasks” from the Wellness Model. On this mental Journey, we will amongst other methods, explore the link between colour and emotions. Through creativity, conversation and reflection, we aim for Mental Wellness, a way to enjoy life and create a balance between life activities, emotions and a successful adaptation to a range of demands.

Through your Journaling, you will find your own personal focus point, which demands your attention for added wellness. From this discovery, you will spend a full day creating a Mixed Media Painting, your very own “Trust the Journey”.

Description of Lismore:

The beautiful  island of Lismore ( just off the port of Oban) is tranquil and unspoiled, and surrounded on all sides by stunning mountain scenery, from Ben Nevis and Glencoe in the north, to Ben Cruachan in the east, and the hills of Mull to the south.

There is an immediate sense of peace, when arriving on the island. Time to think and rejuvenate.
