Workshops by Art as Therapy
At Art as Therapy we facilitate art therapy workshops designed specifically for you. Through the often less familiar process of making something, participants are provided the opportunity for self-expression, which allows participants to tap into their creativity, to see things in a new way, to learn about themselves, and to gain personal insight. Being in a group can be a really powerful and meaningful experience. Participants benefit greatly from sharing the experience with others. There is power in collective wisdom and insight. And don't forget participants may experience enjoyment through the process, and the act of making something may positively shift their mood and energy level!
Presentations, lectures & workshops for professionals
Art as Therapy also provides experiential learning workshops, lectures and or presentations for allied professionals on a number of different topics related to art therapy, mental health, cultural humility and mental wellness. This can be a part of your professional development time, board meetings, strategic planning or visioning meetings, team building, staff meetings, health and wellness or general learning.
Good to know
Our workshops are strengths-based and empowerment-focused. If relevant, we bring a trauma-informed, relational, anti-oppressive and cultural humility focused approach to all our workshops or presentations. Participants will be provided with all the necessary art materials and will be invited to create and be guided through an insightful experience.
