About this Event

Creative Expression: An Art Therapy Group

Thursdays, June 25th to July 23rd: 5 consecutive sessions

This series of five sessions will explore expressive art making with whatever materials you have on hand. Together we will explore how making art can help us manage emotions or develop new insights. We will have opportunities over the series of five workshops to practice expressive art making and explore its multiple helpful aspects, through different topics and exercises.

Over the series, Amy will guide us in using tools such as line, shape, colour, space and symbol to convey thoughts and feelings in visual form, finding new ways to externalize and communicate one’s inner experience.

We will also explore with related art exercises: the sensory, kinaesthetic, cognitive, emotional and symbolic value of art making, connecting with archetypes/myth through art for self-discovery, response writing to art images, integration of conflicted feeling/thought states and art for relaxation and mindfulness, among others.

Everyone will have the option to share and discuss their art works at each workshop, but this is entirely optional.

Please have on hand some blank paper and any drawing materials you have on hand such as pencil crayons, markers, pastels or paints.

Cost:$85

If this cost would prevent you from participating, we invite you to apply for a bursary.
