Art Therapy Workshops

Our Art Therapy Workshops focus on providing a safe space for individuals to explore how artistic processes can enhance one’s well-being in a holistic way.

How Can Art Be Used For Improving One’s Overall Well Being?

  • Art making encourages mindfulness by creating a natural link between the body & mind

  • Art making engages both hemispheres of the brain and can improve brain functioning

  • Exploring specific themes through art can improve ones self-awareness and ability to self-express

  • Creating art in a group setting allows one to connect & communicate with others in a new way

  • Art creation is great for stress relief, and testing out new ideas or ways of being in the world

We also do Art Therapy Workshops by request for organizations that wish to support their members and staff. These workshops are tailored to your specific needs. Please send us an email at our contact page and we will be in touch shortly.

Fees

Our workshops are $20 per person. All proceeds from our workshop will help to support our continuous journey to strive towards affordable mental health services for all. You take care of others by first taking care of you.
