Take an Expressive Arts class or one session:
The goal of the class is to spark creativity while also teaching individuals to use their own artistic self-expression to release difficult emotions, relieve stress, avoid self-sabotage, learn about themselves, increase their own resilience and visualize and facilitate their own development. Learning how to do this through is a skill that any human can acquire.
Artistic self-expression is not about what the art looks like. What matters is the meaning that the human discovers and creates by doing it. Through that meaning-making process the human can effectively influence his or her own development.
The class integrates different art modalities in each session, such as drawing, movement, painting, sculpting and writing to help people find positive perspectives.
There is an accepting and playful environment to stimulate free self expression.
