Join us for a four-week immersive art workshop where process artwork will be created, and stories will be told and heard. We will explore symbolic storytelling using process artwork, a single piece of art that is created over the course of multiple sessions. By the end of this workshop, you will have gained access to a visual method of storytelling that allows for a deeper relationship to unconscious creative content. Each participant will explore visual storytelling as an act of playfulness and creative stretching. Participants will be invited to share as little or as much of the stories they create as they’d like. Although led by an art therapist, this experience is not clinical in nature or intended as a therapeutic intervention.
