Lakewood Experience Series: How Art Can Heal

Thank You to everyone who joined us and participated in this event!

About this event

Regardless of personal experience or skill, making art is a compelling way to help us cope, understand, and explore complex life experiences and personal journeys.

In these workshops centered around ideas and principles used in art therapy, we’ll be using simple tools that you can find around the house such as pens, pencils, and paper to explore expression, grief, and empowerment - encouraging communication and understanding through art.

This workshop will be offered on multiple dates: Thursday, June 4, 2020: 6:30p.m. - 7:00p.m.

Monday, June 8, 2020: 6:30p.m. - 7:00p.m. Thursday, June 11, 2020 6:30p.m. - 7:00p.m.

*Guests are only required to register for 1 workshop. This event is free and open to all skills levels - No artistic experience required!

Please bring paper, pens, and any other writing or drawing materials to the event.
