Poetry- Stream of Consciousness: Journaling to Stay Present (8-12)
with Tyra Jamison
Tyra will be hosting a recorded session and adding it into Google Classroom! Tyra will also be having a live Zoom call to discuss the prompt! Take a look at her biography on our website!
In this recorded workshop, Tyra will be walking the young artists through a free writing exercise focusing on mindful observation. For kids approaching their tween years, there are already a lot of internal pressures, and extreme outside events can create a very stressful environment. As a professional artist that has had to use mindfulness to cope with anxiety and stress, my free writing has become a safe space for me to express what's on my mind and ground myself in the present moment. The center that I reach when I am mindful is the center I reach when I am free writing.
In this exercise, Tyra will lead a free writing exercise that's intended to be done in a private area that brings you peace. I will be sharing techniques to ground yourself in all 5 senses. After, I will guide the young artists through an exercise where they read their free writes out loud to themselves to be or generate their next piece!
