The aim of the workshops is an expression of self-discovery. in which the participants to express themselves both in poetic language and artistic expression. Each session will begin with writing followed by painting or drawing. The art component is to express visually the essence of the poetry using symbols and archetypes chosen by the participant. The participant will be asked to develop the ideas expressed in class, during the week between classes, for sharing and discussing in the following class. The participants will be asked to notice recurring themes or a theme, to recognise recurring imagery and to be aware of what these mean to them in their everyday lives.
