Exploring Your Fears Through Collage | Early Registration Just Opened

Want to go on a creative adventure and figure some things out about yourself on the way? Today we are opening early registration for a brand new collage course being taught by art educator and therapist Stacy Bynion Stultz! Stacy will be leading us in Exploring Your Fears Through Collage!

We all know the healing power of creating and what it does for your happiness, contentment, and peace but this is bringing an even deeper healing power into your art.


Exploring Your FEARS Through Collage

“In art one must throw one’s life away in order to gain it.” Kafka

Fear is a universal experience. In this class, we will examine and acknowledge our deep-seeded fear and sit with it through the process of collage and art assemblage until it resonates with us, leading us to a journey of healing. Fear is not a problem to be solved but a tool to dismantle our structures of being.

“Bravery is not the absence of fear but an intimacy with it.”

Collage allows for us to find images that we may not be able to create otherwise. Looking through collected imagery; finding words, photos and pictures which illustrate your fears may begin the process of stepping toward them. Once this process is complete and organized in visual form, we will then gather images that help to heal, unravel and dispel the myth of that fear or fears and how it plays a role in preventing you from growing into your gifts.

Hopefully, this process will find you humbled and befriending yourself.

“This very moment is the perfect teacher and is always present.’ Pema Chodren

Let’s journey to wholly unanticipated expansion. Let’s answer what our fear says about us and what we would like to do with that fear. Where there is fear there is power. Personal imagery can move us from fear to joy as we assemble. move paper, overlay and tell out stories through collage.

“The man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.” Micheal de Montaigne

We will witness the journeys of others and how they expressed their troubles and eventual healing through this process. I hope it will bring you some clarity and at least the beginning of a journey to self.



Supplies: Magazines, photo, hand-made images, words, phrases, glue sticks, glue, brushes, and card stock. Writing in any media and adding your own work is welcomed!

For Such A Time As This

My friend Lorraine Lewis is very sick.

I have not known what to do or even what to say.

With her permission I am writing to all of you today.

From the moment I heard that she had stage 4 cancer she consumes my thoughts throughout the day.

I have known Lorraine for at least 6 years.

I remember so many years ago I bought a piece of her mixed media art and I secretly told her that I did mixed media too…and someday I wanted to get up the courage to show it.

Lorraine has been light and encouragement from the moment I “met” her.

I have never met Lorraine in person but I don’t think that even matters.

 So many people in my creative circle know her and have been changed by her faith, love of family, encouragement, tenderness, joy and art.


Lorraine was the one who gently encouraged me to begin sharing my art.

I don’t even know if she remembers this.

Lorraine was born for such a time as this.

Not the cancer.

The way she has influenced the lives of others.

The light and encouragement she has always been.

The grace in which she handles even the toughest of circumstances.

The way she opens her beautiful home to others and her home is only the backdrop to the beauty of her hospitality and love for others.

The way she loves her husband and encourages those around her to try again or try harder.

The way she shares her faith and lets you know that even if you don’t believe the same as she does…she loves you just the same.

The way she softly shares her art not knowing how amazing her creations truly are.

She just loves.

When Lorraine’s name is brought up people’s faces light up. She does that to you.

Lorraine needs a miracle.

 Maybe we all do because we need this light to still be in this world.

Whether you know Lorraine or not will you please life her and her family up in prayer?

I want us to make such a ruckus in heaven:-)

Join me in letting Lorraine know how much she is loved and may our prayers be a blanket that covers Lorraine and her family in protection, comfort and healing.

Lorraine, you still owe me a painting so don’t think you are getting out of it:-)
