SoulCollage® is Family Friendly, for those who are able to cut and paste, and can handle PG-13 images and discussion. This will vary by individual, and as long as they attend with an adult, they are not only welcome, it's a wonderful thing to experience with a child and for the child. In general the images are not meant to trigger trauma or anything toxic, scary or disturbing, but that can never be guaranteed since all our experiences are so different.
I've done SoulCollage® with my 10 year old nephew and 12 year old nieces and we all had a great time. It was so very special for me. I have to contain my excitement in front of them so they don't freak out and decide they don't want to do it anymore. I was amazed at what they came up with. See examples below.
I've had collagers around the same age as my nephew and nieces attend workshops and they had as rich and valuable an experience as the adults. It's a gift to see SoulCollage® through the eyes of children; to see the magic at such an early age is refreshing and hopeful. So please bring your kids along if you feel they would enjoy SoulCollage® as much as you do. They are welcome!
Megan Menkveld created MMSoul to have a platform from which she could share SoulCollage® and the overall gift of art in order to create balance and wellness for all individuals open to receiving it. This blog is a way to stay in touch and keep the conversation going outside of workshop time. Please visit regularly, comment and share! All are welcome.
