ART ACTIVITY WORKSHOPS
Activities with children such as individual weaving looms, talking sticks, metal word stamping, laser cut boxes, and string art, all provide opportunities for personal creative expression with intention.
In this workshop everyone has the opportunity to create an artistic self portrait by applying the technique of blind contour drawing. This involves drawing outlines while looking at an object or your own reflection and not at the paper. Color is added with watercolor paints. The portraits provide a new perspective on the self and the ease of creative expression.
LASER CUT DESIGN/BUILD
Laser cutters are a tool that allow students to rapidly go from design to finished product. One of our favorite classes to offer due to its empowering nature.
Includes a variety of projects to build resilience and recovery with groups who need deeper facilitation. We utilize the instruction of a certified art therapist for all projects.
