Producing art brings immediate results. Being creative calms us, clarifies attitudes and beliefs, and makes us feel better both mentally and physically, while our paintings often mirror what we keep hidden inside. Well-trained, supportive staff maintain an optimal environment and secure, nurturing atmosphere, while leading participants through art exercises designed to elicit self-awareness.
Our guided technique has a 25-year track record of helping people deal with crisis, trauma and the daily grind. The format and structure is different than that of traditional art therapy, which is a legally separate institution. Certified leaders are facilitators of the creative process, not therapists, and don’t interpret artwork; participants are in charge of their own exploration.
