Expect hands-on and self-reflective art making.
No art experience required.

Art Therapy is a symbolic healing practice based on the tenants of intentionality, respect, faith, acceptance and presence. When words are not enough this head, heart and hand guided creative process utilizes these healing and self-reflective aspects to explore a sensory and metaphoric experience beyond the limitations of language; permitting a direct expression of inner knowledge to foster reconciliation and self-awareness.

With a firm basis in relational theory and developmental psychology Art Therapy is valuable for prevention, treatment and rehabilitation when working with children, adolescents and adults.
