Workshops





I offer small group workshops in a warm and friendly studio environment.

Creative Arts Workshops are open to anyone interested in taking the time and space to connect with themselves through creative process. The art making in these workshops is focused on building a compassionate approach to personal expression and no previous art experience is necessary.

Professional Development Workshops are designed for art therapists and practitioners in related fields (expressive arts therapists, counselors, social workers, healthcare workers etc) who seek to broaden their therapeutic skills and learn more about art and healing.

Upcoming Workshop:

Creativity & Self-Compassion - Strengthening the Heart through Art & Meditation
February 9 & 10, 2019
10-4:30pm
Vancouver BC
Cost:$225

Making art can be wonderful way to help us develop insight about our relationship with ourselves and cultivate greater compassion in our lives. Through developing more empathy and  kindness, we can strengthen our capacity to show up more fully for the joys and challenges of life.  This workshop combines creative process with the mindfulness and metta practices.  Metta comes from Buddhism and translates as loving kindness.  We will spend the weekend exploring painting, sculpture, textiles, writing and meditation to help us connect with ourselves and awaken the compassionate heart.

This workshop is open to helping professionals as well as the general public.  The art process is focused on personal expression rather than techniques and is suitable for all abilities. No previous art experience necessary.
