Creative Journaling: Step into resilience

with Kathie MacDuff


In Creative Journaling, a theme is presented and participants use words, images and a variety of mixed media techniques to unearth, explore and record their responses, thoughts and emotions.

This program unites participants in hope, support and camaraderie as they journey towards creativity and spirit.

In this safe creative space, negativity is banished leaving only room for meaningful connection, self-expression and healing.

“Stand straight, walk proud, have a little faith, hold out.”

Garth Brooks sang it. We are going to explore how we might handle the challenges that life (and creativity) inevitably bring our way and how we might rise above our negative self-talk to meet them.


KATHIE MacDUFF is a trained journalist and a self-taught artist. For the past twenty years, she has been teaching courses in watercolour, mixed media, paper arts and creative journaling. She conducts weekly classes in Calgary at the Good Shepherd Art Studio.

Kathie is the Expressive Arts Team Leader At Wellspring, a cancer supportive care community, and for the Tom Baker Cancer Centre’s Arts in Medicine program. Her vision is to facilitate journaling experiences that encourage connections, validate emotions and nourish the soul.
