Healing Art Lesson #10: Vincent Van Gogh

Welcome to my series: Healing Arts

My desire is to give you the opportunity to experience what it is I mean when I call my work "healing art chaplaincy"

Welcome to Lesson 10

Find a quiet place and gather a journal or paper and pencils/pens/colored pencils/markers/crayons

Take a few moments to take some deep breaths and center yourself.

 Click here to find some of the psalms as prayers I have added to the blog and read one quietly to yourself or out loud to aid in your centering process.

Now let's begin
View and Reflect:

  1. What do you think this artist is trying to say in this artwork? What is the meaning or message?
  2. What emotions do you feel when looking at this?
 3. What do you want to remember about this artwork?

What wisdom are you experiencing TODAY through this piece of art?

We move more deeply into the Creativity practice using one of the following options:
Write about a time when you felt similar emotions
Create a drawing based on your writing
Recreate Van Gogh's painting while experiencing the feelings of this piece.
