Featured Class: Creative Journaling Workshop


  • Don’t write poetry?
  • Think you can’t draw?
  • Maybe not, but you may still want a creative way to record your thoughts, feelings, dreams, and ideas! In this four-week workshop, teens will learn how to use creative journaling for self-expression and self-discovery. Creative journaling is not writing daily “Dear Diary” style entries on dated pages. Techniques such as freeform writing, black-out poetry, and creative list making- in addition to experimenting with simple mixed media like collage and photography- will be explored. Students will work through class prompts and personal reflections, and will develop a sense of how journals are safe spaces to process emotions, explore creativity, and cultivate self-awareness.

    The workshop is for teens in 8th – 12th grade. It meets on March 22, March 29, April 5, and April 12 from 11:00 am – 11:55 am at Compass. Register for the Creative Journaling Workshop and other classes online.
