Art Therapy & Education for Adults
Adult Art Psychotherapy
"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." - CATA
Session online or in person at or studio in
Art therapy can help you express feelings, cope with anxieties, become more mindful and enjoy the creative process. If you have not had success with traditional talk therapy, then art therapy may be for you. You may ask, "But what if I am no good at art?" Art therapy is for everyone. Creativity and art therapy is more process than product focused. Freedom to express yourself using different types of mediums and materials is supported. Clients cultivate and follow the creative impulse to see what happens.
Adult Art Hive
“Communities are not built of friends, or of groups of people with similar styles and tastes, or even of people who like and understand each other. They are built of people who feel they are part of something that is bigger than themselves. To build community requires only the ability to see value in others: to look at them and see a potential partner in one's enterprise.”
-Suzanne Goldsmith, A City Year, 1997
