Art meets health in Mindful Journaling- February’s Creative Aging course offered through Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts. Visual arts instructor Briana Haupt has partnered with Winona’s own Sarah Johnson, mental health professional and creative laureate, to create this curriculum that is sure to be a hit. Mindful Journaling is a self-paced course consisting of 8 prompts over 8 weeks. Prompts will include:
  • a video (approximately 10 minutes) for each week from mental health professional Sarah Johnson with mindfulness techniques
  • a written description of the video for those that do not wish to use technology
  • a written art lesson by MCA visual art instructor Briana Haupt
  • instructions to incorporate both the mindfulness and art techniques in journaling
Registered participants will receive a kit with the materials needed for the class. The kit may also contain extra surprises to assist with mindfulness exercises!
Mindful Journaling (ages 55+) is $24 (includes supplies for pickup- for $12 supplies can be mailed anywhere in the U.S.)
Days/Dates: February 7-April 3 (8 weeks, self-paced)
