me and my art:
an introduction to art therapy

Have you ever wondered about the process of art therapy? How can it be helpful, how can I use it in my own life, or maybe you are just feeling stuck in your life? This class is an art therapy experience that allows for open expression. Open expression will allow for exploration of new art materials as well as investigating your own thoughts and life challenges. As the artist, only you decide how and what you want to express. This class will be held on April 9, 2022, and participants will be supplied oil pastels for the class.

This workshop is for participants 16+. All participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult, or a guardian must fill out a release form. This workshop has a minimum of 5 participants, and a maximum of 10. If the workshop does not meet the minimum, participants will be refunded.
