Join Minette for a 5-day Visual Journaling Challenge!

What better way to begin a new day than putting dreams on paper and playing with paint!?

Join me for an all new 5-day Visual Journaling Challenge.

As you transition into the coming months you are gathering your dreams and energies and waiting for them to bloom.

Come learn a unique way to visually bring your creative dreams and plans to life on the visual journal page.

What is Courageous Creativity?

This short and sweet 5-day challenge is the perfect gift to yourself.

No artistic skills are needed. Come as you are!

Discover a simple, encouraging and reflective practice that you can do once a week or once a day using elements of mixed media art, writing, and collage.

By the end of our time together you will have created a gorgeous visual journaling spread that is uniquely you, by simply adding one layer at a time.


What is Visual Journaling?

Visual Journaling is a form of creative self-expression that uses imagery, color, shape and form to connect with our inner thoughts and emotions more fluently than words can.

Imagery is our primary language and is learned long before we are able to speak, draw or write.

Visual journaling invites you to be open to explore, discover and reconnect with yourself and your life experiences through art and writing.

Visual Journaling is a powerful tool for personal meaning-making and creates space on the page for you to see yourself, your dreams and your feelings.

Now is the perfect time of year to reconnect to your dreams and make more time for creative self-expression.


What does the Courageous Creativity Visual Journaling Challenge include?

  • A recorded introduction to visual journaling and how it is different from or similar to art journaling.

  • Replay of a live session where we created a Sacred Well journaling page together

  • Daily video lessons and prompts to support your visual journaling practice in about 15 minutes a day.

  • Recommended supply list

  • Bonus content on how to make time for yourself & your creativity as well as how to make space in your home for your visual journaling practice

  • Ideas for how to continue your visual journaling practice beyond the challenge

  • A safe creative community to travel with on your journey on the challenge

Answers before you ask

What happens if I miss a day, get stuck or feel like I'm behind?

First, take a deep breath. This journey is intended to fill you up and nourish you, not add to your stress. Second, I will be sharing specific tips on how to make time for your daily creative practice so you show up for yourself every single day. Finally, I know that life happens, we get called away and I want to reassure you that you will have lifetime access to the content and to the Courageous Creativity community. Your creative journey should last a lifetime and so will this program.

Will I need to purchase special supplies?

Well, that's a loaded question :-) No, you absolutely do not need to purchase anything. I will definitely include a list of recommended supplies for all participants. I encourage, no I challenge you, to use what you have at hand. I will be showing examples that include Zentangle®, collage and mixed media with acrylic paints but you can create your visual journaling pages with any tools you have at hand. If all you have is paper, pen and a few crayons you found in your kid's closet, you can do this! You can watch the free video preview of supplies I love and will be using (see the Recommended Supply List in the example curriculum above).

I'm not artistic, is this still for me?

Absolutely! If you can write your ABCs you can do this. And I know deep in the core of my bones that you are creative. During this 5-day process, you will find playful and simple ways to reconnect with your Inner Artist, even if thinking about drawing makes you cringe.
