Healing Art Lesson #12: Henri Matisse

photo credit

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 12

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:
 What’s going on in this artwork?
 What is boring about this artwork?
 Who do you think was this artwork created for? Why do you say that?
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 Matisse's painting while experiencing the feelings of this piece. 

 Feel free to leave any thoughts in the comments below.
