With our background layer complete, you will then learn how to plan, draw and fully illustrate your own fantastical fauna.

with Laureen Lazarovici

August 4, 2018


SoulCollage® is a gentle, intuitive, creative process that involves creating small collage cards that can be used for ongoing self-reflection, self-awareness and community building.

In this workshop, participants will take a vacation from their thinking, analyzing minds, and drop down into their intuitive knowledge to make their own deck of cards. Each collage card will represent an aspect of an individual’s personality, a guide, a challenger or an archetype at work in our lives.

While SoulCollage cards are beautiful, they are not intended to be art to hang on the wall or sell. They are just for you. Especially for artists, SoulCollage can be a welcome respite from thinking about the rules of composition, color theory and similar constraints, similarly, you don't have to be an artist to take this workshop. If you can use scissors and glue sticks, you can do SoulCollage!

Through the creative and satisfying collage process, SoulCollage® focuses on developing the whole person and bolstering confidence, inner strength and passion to be fully present.

About Laureen:
"I am a journalist, writer and editor and have been my whole adult life. But when I was a little girl, I was fascinated by Greek mythology and imagined myself as all the different goddesses. I also made collages. Today, I now see these two childhood impulses come together in my work as a SoulCollage® facilitator. After spending decades immersed in words, now it's time for some pictures!"

Since becoming trained as a SoulCollage® facilitator in October, 2015, Laureen has worked with participants at creative self-care workshops for social justice activists and college students. She loves bringing this healing practice to those who want to benefit from self-reflection and increased self-awareness.

"Creating and working with my own SoulCollage® cards has been a calming, relaxing way to gently and playfully explore my soul's yearnings."

"New Perspectives" Art Journaling with Susie Zolghadri

September 29, 2018

The way we interpret the world around us starts with our perspective.  Changing that changes everything. At times, you need a life-changing event to spur your creativity.  At other times it’s the tiniest movement, a simple word or even a leaf on the sidewalk that can spark your imagination and fuel your inspiration.

Join me as we explore this idea of “new perspectives” in our art journals using creative prompts in drawing, writing, painting, collage and more.

Artist Bio

I was born and raised in the green mountains of Vermont. My family is filled with artists. Musicians, weavers, ceramicists, painters and photographers have all had their influence on me. I am drawn to nature in all its forms and find it frequently emerging as a theme in my work. I am an artist. Before art journaling, I began playing with fabric and making art pieces, or art quilts.  I entered many quilt shows around the country. I wrote articles about my technique and process and was published in numerous magazines including several Somerset Studios publications. At a retreat for fabric arts I took a workshop on art journaling. Thus began my six year love of this personal, visual expression of my thoughts and feelings.

Art journaling led me to a desire to paint in a larger format and I am currently a mentored artist at Art on 30th under professional artist, Ari Kate Ashton. I have been juried into a multitude of shows at Art on 30th in San Diego and have work for sale at Art ‘N Soul on 101 in Encinitas. I also enjoy participating in outdoor art fairs and have been part of ArtWalk Little Italy and ArtWalk Liberty Station for the past three years. I’m currently enrolled in a professional certificate program at the University of California, San Diego titled “Art And The Creative Process”.

Every time I approach the canvas or journal page, I am ready to gain an understanding of my emotional and intellectual connection with life. There is always a reflection from within, along with the gift of clarity and purpose. I paint intuitively, letting layers of paint, fabric, collage and paper interact and unfold into a story. When I discover the story within the painting, its meaning comes into focus. When the meaning has been revealed, my painting is complete.
