WORKSHOPS & SEMINARS

Please visit regularly to view list of workshops and seminars. Schedule of Fall Classes will be provided in the near future. We will offer introductory and advanced classes in expressive arts facilitation, as well as themed-topic workshops, on various topics, listed below, for the professional as well as the general public. Feel free to send in suggestions on topics that you might like to have addressed.

 

Our workshops and seminars are both didactic and experiential. They create an atmosphere of fun, creativity, and are interactive. Our hands-on approach offers an opportunity to hone your skills and try on new ones in a safe, non-threatening atmosphere. We often deal with serious, concrete situations and issues, but the decentering process of our approach tends to offset much of the discomfort that usually occurs during traditional talk therapies. Our philosophy of low skill/high sensitivity usually appeals to those participants who are sometimes reluctant to engage in activities that require them to display their artistic talent, especially when it comes to a particular art form in which they consider themselves less skillful. Our focus is on process, rather than product. While most people wish to produce the best product possible, we ask simply that they bring their passion for artmaking and their openness to new ideas and the integrated art approach. We hope that you will be able to get in contact with your inner soul and see what emerges, through your art. We believe that the soul has a language all its own. It has much to communicate to you, and will do so, if you are willing to participate in the process of intermodal art expression. We learn about POIESIS, the gaining of knowledge, through our art making. The workshops use a number of different art mediums, integratively, as mentioned above. Some of these art mediums include: visual art, dance/movement, music/toning, drama, poetry, creative writing, journaling, oral storytelling, and other art forms.
