When art and community gathers, the creative imagination is engaged and harvested to bring inspiration, healing to self and others, and a renewed vitality back to the community.
My services include group programs that invite wellness, empowerment, and healing – with a focus towards women and teens (14+) within Edmonton, the surrounding area, and now offered online. All programs can be customized to address your group needs.
Expressive arts isn’t arts and crafts or new age – healing through art is one of the oldest cultural practices experienced in every region of the world. In an expressive arts group, participants are provided with fun and creative exercises that invite expression and emotional release – together, all at the same time. Everyone contributes, shares, and witnesses the gifts that emerge when the creative spirit is released.
Listening to someone talk about art isn’t nearly as effective or fun as doing it yourself! Shaun McNiff, author and pioneer in the field of expressive arts, says, “We can only learn about creativity through our own experience of it.”
Art and creativity are soul medicine, flowing like a river through every life situation, providing an opening to whatever needs attention and change.
All speaking engagements include an experiential component so that participants get a taste of what expressive arts is about, and experience the shift that occurs when the creative spirit is engaged.
Imagine what might happen if spaces for soul medicine to unfold were available in every community…??
My services include individual expressive art sessions in the comfort of your own home with a focus on art and wellness. We’ll invite curiosity to guide us on a creative adventure using various art modalities which may include visual art making, creative writing, poetry, music and movement.
What will you need? A computer, webcam and microphone, yourself, and whatever art supplies you have on hand (even if it’s just paper and a pencil). Expensive art supplies are not needed; most items are available at thrift stores or can be found around home.
Please contact me to inquire about fees. Sessions run approximately 90 minutes and are available by appointment. A 3-session minimum is recommended.
Contact me and let’s begin a conversation about individual sessions, bringing an expressive arts program to your group, or speaking at your event about the healing power of the arts.
