What is a group session like?
A therapeutic group art session inspires and ignites people's creativity and imagination and is for all age groups. Participants are taken on a journey and able to use their imaginative right side brain to explore their own personal meanings in life, based on the artwork. The value from a therapeutic group art session goes far deeper than just the creativity. Client's have the opportunity to explore emotions and experiences in their life. Elders in groups have the opportunity to reminescence about their life, as well as experience gratitude for all that has meaning in their world.
Art therapy sessions are an opportunity to share with others in a non judgmental and non analytical environment. A person experiences friendship, bonding, soulful moments, and gains new insights and a sense of fulfilment. Art from the heart is what its all about.
