We connect your child and family through art therapy to understand and process emotions that can often be difficult to express with words.



We guide you to create inspiring works of art and enable your imagination to flourish in a safe and supportive, confidential environment.



We support you through the creative process while you learn new art-making techniques, and explore high quality art materials. All abilities are welcome.



We nurture your child and celebrate all types of families navigating life at every age and stage to empower you to become all you are created

to be.

Connect, create, learn, and be nurtured: Nurture Nest has a group art workshop or art therapy session for you, your child or other family member. We encourage you to process emotions, navigate relationships with family and friends and understand yourself through art-making and the creative process. We offer sessions in our art studio space and online from the comfort of your home.


Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." - Picasso

Picasso is right!

Especially in our current times, art therapy can help your family express feelings, cope with anxieties, become more mindful and enjoy the creative process. You may ask, "But what if I am no good at art?" Art therapy is for EVERYONE. Creativity and art therapy is less about what you produce and more about the creating through the process of expression with different types of mediums and materials.

According the the Canadian Art Therapy Association (CATA), "art therapy combines the creative process and psychotherapy, facilitating self-exploration and understanding. Using imagery, colour and shape as part of this creative therapeutic process, thoughts and feelings can be expressed that would otherwise be

difficult to articulate."

YOU are a work of HEART!

Nurture Nest invites your family to experience the joy of understanding yourself deeply, make meaningful connections with each other and creating in a safe space to be the best of who you are created to be.

What is
Art Therapy?


We are dedicated to supporting individuals of all faiths, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and gender identities.

In the spirit of reconciliation, we honour and acknowledge Moh’kinsstis, the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, as well as the Stoney-Nakoda, including the Chiniki, Bearspaw and Wesley Nations and the Tsuut’ina nations. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. We acknowledge all Nations – Indigenous and non

– who live, work and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
