Art Therapy Open Studio

Mondays – 5:00 to 7:00 PM

Drop-in: no pre-registration required

Experience the benefits of creative expression in a supportive group environment. No experience required.

Join us at our weekly open studio, each with its own theme, using a variety of art making mediums and techniques like mending, stitching, paint, collage, clay, found objects, 2d and 3d, weaving, and nature to explore what is immediate for you in the moment.

Making art together can support us to move through life’s challenges, helping us to grieve our losses, mitigate feelings of isolation and loneliness and reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety.

The sessions will be facilitated by Art Therapist Heidi Abbott.  Heidi has a love for the therapeutic, meditative, healing, and self-expressive attributes of creating together.

Everyone welcome, free, all supplies are provided.

Please visit this website for the current schedule, to sign up for reminders and info on the weekly themes.
