Your Story Lines:
Exploring Points of Inflection in Racial Awareness,
an Open Studio Process Experience

Rescheduled due to hurricane:

December 2, 1:00 to 3:30 pm edt

Transforming our racial awareness is an inside job.  Using Open Studio Process (OSP) we will identify points in personal history that make up our racial understanding.  We invite you to join us in an exploration of the strengths and vulnerabilities in our personal and collective stories.

Participants will:

  • set an intention about exploring racial awareness
  • create art about a point of personal history
  • witness their process 

This Expressive Arts Florida Institute workshop will be recorded and the recording will be posted in the forum after the workshop, for viewing only by those who have registered for the workshop. To ensure confidentiality of participants, the recording will be paused during sharing.

Rhonda Johnson, ATR-BC graduated Wellesley College with a degree in Economics, then pursued a career in corporate marketing.  Reprioritizing her love for art, years later she made a mid-course correction to pursue a graduate degree in Creative Art Therapies at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY.  As a board-certified art therapist, and certified Open Studio Process facilitator; she offers art experiences in her home studio as well as at various community spaces.  Before the pandemic, Rhonda worked at a behavioral health center in Newark, NJ, creating and running their art therapy program for over 50 children and teens. Rhonda now provides art therapy via telehealth to kids who can benefit from art as a means of self-expression.  In her spare time, she indulges in Britcoms, knitting, drawing and reading.
