This group is for anyone interested in creative self-expression and exploration through the use of expressive abstract painting and collage techniques.
Rather than formal art instruction, these workshops are based on the Art4Healing® curriculum which uses structured guided exercises to promote creative self-expression, exploration, and personal insight.
Absolutely NO prior artistic training or experience is required. You don't have to be "good" at art or even know how to hold a paintbrush (we don't use them!). These workshops are all about letting go, developing your creative intuition, and having fun!
Each workshop will focus on creating 2-3 completed one-of-a-kind pieces and conclude with a group discussion about the inspiration behind their creations. All materials will be provided.
If you hear a voice within you say, "You cannot paint", then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced. -Vincent Van Gogh
