For an experienced artist, I would recommend this class if you are trying to get out of a creative rut by approaching art mindfully and with fresh eyes. But you might resonate more with a class like BIG ART.
This class is not art therapy. However, I am a registered art therapist, and I use my understanding of psychology, mindfulness, and the artistic process to help students tune joyfully into the moment and engage in their art practice in deeper ways. We will not use this class to address your mental health concerns, but engaging in a mindful art practice, like any mindfulness or art practice, may have positive benefits for your overall sense of well-being.
