Open Studio introduces you to the therapeutic benefits of art making with a licensed professional counselor and registered art therapist in a relaxed community setting. This community group is ideal for adults looking to improve self-support skills, engage more deeply in their life, and build connection with others.
Open Studio will work with weekly themes that allow each participant to explore their individual needs in a group setting through the creative process. The facilitator will guide participants through verbal instructions, modeling, and materials guidance. Participants will learn to trust their own intuition to get the most from each session. Outcomes you might experience from session include:
Learn to identify important thoughts, feelings, and patterns by bringing the unconscious experience to the conscious image
Enjoy new set of skills to enhance your life
Process life experiences
Unlock creative potential and push past blocks
Learn to trust yourself and take safe risks
While highly therapeutic, these sessions are not therapy. Open Studio is designed to cater to the community in general; you don’t have to know anything about art or therapy to be a great fit! Participants do not need to bring anything as all the necessary tools and basic art materials are provided for each session. Participants are welcome to bring their own materials for personal preference or specific projects if they wish.
Sessions Start September 7th from 5:30-7:00 and continue each Wednesday through October 19th.
*This group is not appropriate for those experiencing acute psychiatric/mental health distress. If you are experiencing acute needs, please consider individualized treatment options.
