Creative Connections with the Land:
Online Environmental Arts Therapy Group
with Art Therapist Sarah West
Tuesdays, Feb 16 – March 23, 2021
1:00 – 3:00 PM Online via Zoom
Come and engage creatively with the land and your fellow community members through a weekly, online environmental arts therapy group.
We will discover ways of creatively engaging with nature, indoors and outside. By working with natural materials and ecological concepts, we invite you to deepen connection within ourselves, with each other and the natural world. Creatively engaging the land can inform our lives, help us listen to the land’s stories, and interact in a spirit of reciprocity.
The group is open to anyone interested in working with the land and growing their ecological connection.
