FC: (re)Create You from the Inside Out.
1: Experience Sweet Freedom with Inside Out Visual Journaling Workshops The worlds of spirit, art, words, photography, design, and emotion coalesce to (re)Create You...from the Inside Out color, design and iconography transform your words into vivid expressions on the page inspiring you to express yourself with clarity, vision and heart no art experience needed...just your authenticity and an open mind everything you need to bring is already in you
2: Who Are We? We are the creative force behind the most innovative concept in health and well-being: the online community and inspirational source, Inside Out. Our team of artists, therapists and educators are experts at teaching people from 8-80 how to use art as a tool for self-exploration, self-awareness and self-discovery. Our founder, Rachel Kaufman, created this approach out of her own self-work. By adding color and basic symbolism to her journaling, her ability to understand her struggles, challenges and unmet needs in a richer way was greatly enhanced. This awareness led her, as it has the countless people we've been blessed to teach and inspire, to a sense of personal freedom and a clear vision for the future.
3: How Does it Work? Inspiring Questions + Meaningful Materials = Insight, Growth and Change 1. We ask thought-provoking questions about your life and your dreams. 2. We provide a kit with everything you need to create your own personal answers in words and images. 3. We share quotes, music, pictures, thoughts and feelings, and teach you easy-to-use tips and techniques to express yourself your way. 4. You leave with a sense of clarity, comfort and a brand new way to keep exploring what matters most. No art experience required and You can't do it wrong!
5: Inspiring Questions The first key to Inside Out is asking you to explore thought-provoking, open-ended questions that help you dig deep about where you've been, where you are and where you want to be. Our enjoyable and dynamic workshops, led by our founder and trained facilitators nationwide, offer a chance for discussion, reflection and creation. Our team is experienced in encouraging groups of all sizes and ages to add non-verbal, visual ideas to their art to help them express themselves in a full, cathartic and liberating way. The questions are specific enough to engender rich answers, but broad enough for anyone to relate to. Just like life's challenges and triumphs, our prompts are both personal and universal.
7: Meaningful Materials Our simple-to-use art kits use color, icons, design and sentiments that encourage expression of a target emotion – from Confidence to Enlightenment, Hope to Acceptance. Creating with our kits is approachable, structured, and supportive. We have (and can custom-create) a kit to match any self-reflective theme. Each kit include paper, alphabets, materials on which to journal, evocative, thematic embellishments in chipboard, wood, plastic, fabric and more, a color medium (paint, ink, or glitter), an acrylic stamp or a stencil. Everyone from seasoned artists to those new to visual creativity will find inspiration and ease in using these beautiful and evocative materials. Our workshops include basic tools for participants to use such as paper trimmers, scissors, pens and adhesive.

Let us ask you a question: Are You Ready to ReCreate Yourself From the Inside Out? | Does it work? Before Inside Out I had zero self-confidence in my abilities and creativity. This has shown me worth and belief in myself that I didn’t know was there. Maybe it wasn’t there. But this helped me grow and nurture it. Self-esteem is awesome! Kai B., Ohio, IT Trainer Battling depression, I was away from work for 2 years. Inside Out helped me through the healing and recovery process. I was able to put words to what I was feeling. I was able to put on paper the battles I was fighting and the small victories I was experiencing. It helped my therapist see where I was at in my thoughts and feelings. Seeing it on paper made it more real. I’ve broached subjects that I never thought I could, in a safe environment, which was truly liberating. Thank you! Martine L., Elementary School Teacher A study of the Inside Out program with at-risk teen girls in our non-public school demonstrated a significant reduction in aggression and increase in insight and connectedness between the girls as a result of using the Inside Out kits and curriculum.
