Art making will allow participants to work through life/professional/academic experiences in a safe and expressive way. Art as healing is a growing movement that has a lot to offer to people working through emotions that are difficult to put into words.

Art Therapy is the use of the creative process partnered with psychotherapy which offers a chance for self-exploration and understanding. Art allows us to explore things we may not have words to explain. While Art Therapy can be a deep and intense form of counseling, this group will focus on a lighter form of art therapy – ‘art as healing’. We will be using art as a tool for expression and discussion.


- Participants will have access to an array of collage materials

- They will be asked to consider what their goals are for wellness and reflect on what helps them most to stay in balance.

- “Balance” teachings from a Haudenosaunee perspective.
