Now offering art therapy services

A note from our founder...

​​​Now more than ever, during these uncertain times, families are experiencing more moments of disconnectedness and discontent than we have ever known. We want to help you capture joy, creating art together from the comfort of our studio space or online in your own home. 


"We've made it our mission to use visual art as a way into the hearts of families who want to connect and create together." -Tammy Thomson, Founder


What began as  in-person art classes and events for children and families has

now transformed into group art therapy workshops and individual art therapy sessions offered both in-person in our Southwest Calgary art studio location and online.

Adding the online platform, we now have the opportunity to connect with you wherever you call home. Geography and distance are no longer a barrier for your child and family to access high quality and engaging therapeutic art experiences.

Our educational classes are process-art focused. Our therapeutic group workshops and individual sessions combine the creative process through mindfulness and a person-centred approach. This means we don't follow a 'paint by number' or one size fits all  'cookie cutter craft' approach. We tailor our art curriculum content and our therapy sessions to your needs.

I personally invite you to book an obligation-free, 30 minute consultation with me today.

​Let's create a work of HEART together!
