In Art for Self-Care, artist, designer, and online instructor Jessica Swift outlines a path to healing through artmaking for both artists and non-artists alike.
 

  • Going Inward offers guidance on how to get quiet, embrace the swirl of emotions and nonlinear thoughts without editing or judging, and identify and tune in to one’s authentic inner voice, along with prompts for expressing those messages.
  • Inside Out shares advice on mediums and techniques to try, finding inspiration, and incorporating personal symbols, and emphasizes the value of simply showing up, allowing for mistakes, and focusing on the process rather than on the finished piece.
  • Integrating and Honoring reveals how to accept healing and honor one’s truth and make a commitment to engage in an intuitive art practice.


Strengthen your relationship with your inner voice and begin to change your life, one piece of art at a time.
