About the Artist Facilitator

Ever since she can remember, the arts have been a critically vital and enriching component of Sarah Sidnam’s life. Art is a means of co-creating—of taking an idea or an experience and developing it into a deeper expression and message whether it be a personal message or one intended to be shared. She has danced since the age of 4 (ballet, contemporary, lyrical, jazz, belly dance), experimented with film photography, dabbled in acrylic painting, and spent extensive time art journaling.

A mom of 4 and wife of an Air Force chaplain, creating a space for art in the chaos of life is one of the things that keeps Sarah growing and thriving. Her current investment and passion is in the world of art journaling. Taking the power of words in combination with the tactile experience of art is an incredibly powerful means to process and respond to life. No skills are required—just a willingness to try new things, make a mess, and bring your authentic self!

Sarah has taken several art journaling courses in person and online as well as taught one time workshops and an ongoing art journaling course. She has a heart to walk alongside people in their journey and story and help them thrive no matter what they have been thorough. As a Strengths Finder life coach, she loves to combine coaching with creativity to develop a truly enriching experience. You are worth it! She has also taught Pilates classes and children’s dance classes and is continually ready and willing to try new forms of creative expression!

About this Experience

Words are powerful. Words combined with an element of creativity are even more impactful. By combining the experiences of writing/journaling with a bit of color, paint, ink, collage, paper, and other mixed media in a safe space, one’s processing and journey can dive a little deeper. Its been said that the greatest distance in the world is the one from the head to the heart, and journaling with its companion, creative tactile expression, makes that distance much shorter.

In this one hour and 15 minute experience, we will take a guided journaling prompt and respond to it in a personal & visual diary space with the use of mixed media tools and techniques.  This experience is intended to be very personalized, and it is a very safe and forgiving way to make are as everything can be contained in a personal book or journal. No experience is required–just a willingness to try things, jump into a process, and get a little messy!

Materials included.

Experience is available in person or virtually.
