Introduction, Session 6: Expression (Paintbrush)

In "Toolbox of Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program

Beauty without expression is boring.

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

The paintbrush symbolizes personal expression of our inner life and thoughts. In this session, participants engage in and reflect on various means of personal expression, such as painting, writing, music, and theater. Allow time for participants to engage the issues of what they might like to use as a tool for their own personal expression. Emphasize that there is no one way that will feel comfortable for everyone. In addition, you will want to note that there may well be ways of expression that go beyond the arts, such as building a trail, inventing a computer or creating a personal identity.
