Join us April 17th from 1 – 2:30 pm for an online art therapy workshop facilitated by art therapists Elspeth Robertson and Bethany MacGillivray. This gathering is an opportunity to attend to your self-care through nourishment, connection, and collage.
Utilizing the principles of positive psychology, this guided therapeutic art workshop will focus on cultivating joy, gratitude and celebration. Therapeutic art-making provides the unique opportunity to explore and communicate these themes through the use of symbol, image and metaphor. The creative process can facilitate stress reduction and open up a deep personal dialogue with images and feelings.
