The Self-Community Care Art Workshop will offer participants ways to identify and practice stress relief through art-making. The objectives are to (1) identify normal reactions to the current ongoing collective traumas, (2) practice self-care within community, and (3) explore the interrelation between self and community care. The workshop will include an initial presentation, art experiential, group discussion, and resources. All that is necessary is a piece of paper, colored drawing materials, and a plate, bowl, or other round item that has a 7”-10” diameter and is smaller than the paper.
*Please note that this is a workshop, not therapy. Within these parameters, participants will choose their level of participation, which includes sharing or not sharing their artwork.
PART TWO will follow in December. You can join one or both workshops.
