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 the second Saturdays of September, October, and November. While the class is regularly scheduled, new participants are always welcome. First timers will receive their own package of oil pastels for use in class and out. If you are a returning participant please bring your oil pastels. All participants must register for each session if you would like to attend more than one.
