Art and Healing
Healing Through Creativity: With the use of guided imagery, lucid dreaming techniques and writing exercises, participants identify an area in their life in which they’d like to manifest change and create a work of art reflective of that goal. A variety of materials and techniques will be offered and employed.
Expressive Arts Training
Expressive Arts Techniques For Healthcare Professionals: Participants enhance clinical skills through the appropriation and incorporation of expressive arts techniques. An opportunity for confidential case presentation and the development of individualized experiences, directed at enhancing the healing process, will be offered. Continuing Educational Credits pending.
Art and Activism
Art For Social Change: As articulated by Arts Educator Beverly Naidus, “Art can act as both a deconstructive force (to analyze and question what exists and existed) and as a reconstructive one (providing a visionary role)”. In this workshop, participants identify an area in need of social change and contribute to a group project reflective of that goal. Group process and the power of collective imagination are explored using a variety of materials and techniques.
