Journal to Self-Discovery

Journal to Self-Discovery provides a safe space for UCF students to be present and mindful while channeling their creativity.

This is a self-guided workshop, and we encourage students to participate every week to continue adding pages to their journals. During this FREE workshop, students will have access to paper, stickers, paints, stamps, fabric, and more!

Art workshops take place weekly in the Student Union. Please see our calendar of events for more information.

This is what students say about Journal to Self-Discovery:

“The Journal to Self Discovery workshop gives me a space to channel my anxiety and frustration into something creative. Having a set time every week to actually go to the workshop helps me get out of my own head and turn my negative energy into something positive. It’s been a valuable lesson on re-focusing.”

“It is a stress reliever and a time where I can let everything else fade away and focus on art.”

“This helped me to really look at my life. I haven’t in a while and it was a good experience to have.”

When asked what the most helpful part of this program was, students said the following:

  • Freedom of expression
  • Learning about myself
  • Being able to relax through artistic creation
  • Time to think, good [self-eval] questions to reflect on, and a time to be creative
  • I can be myself
