ONSITE & MOBILE PROGRAMMING
Art Studios & Groups for All Ages
We believe that art is inherently healing and healing can take form indirectly while creating art and enjoying the finished product. We describe our classes and studios as “art as healing.” We hope you leave with important takeaways and inspiration. Our therapeutic art therapy groups are usually closed therapy groups or support groups that are scheduled for a set amount of sessions and offered by a licensed professional or a therapist and artist team. No matter what you choose you are sure to learn more about art, art materials and yourself. Find out more about the materials and mediums we work with below.
"The teachers and artists are so enthusiastic about offering traditional materials and teaching patrons to use them in a modern or new way. It is amazing to see the process and final products." (Mobile Programming)
