Art 4 growth : Discovering yourself through art

Experience more of who you are through the powerful process of art making while working with a small group in a beautiful studio setting. Art 4 Growth Classes and Workshops allow the participants to connect with and cultivate their inherent creativity. Participants will be able to create process-oriented artwork through a variety of exercises and using a broad range of materials. Some of the exercises are based on the powerful process of SoulCollage®, and often topics are introduced through Guided Imageries.  Incorporated are techniques based on IFS, Internal Family System Therapy.

Working within a small group creates a safe and respectful atmosphere that fosters insight as well as fun.


The emphasis of the class is not placed on the product but on the inner experiences which take place during the creative endeavor. The artwork is seen as the outer manifestation of inner experiences; therefore the work can be viewed as a mirror of the self. Often knowledge is revealed in the artwork long before it might be expressed in other conscious forms.
