Art Therapy coming to Cranbrook Arts

Cranbrook and District Arts Council is offering a four-session course of Art Therapy.

Maryann, is an Art Therapist with a Diploma in Art Therapy as well as a B.Ed. She is a retired teacher, mother, grandmother, lives on a ranch at Ft. Steele and loves excursions to Mexico. Maryann believes in the power of art and is excited to share this experience with others.

Teresa is registered Canadian Certified Counsellor and has her Masters in Psychotherapy and Spirituality–Art Therapy. She is a practicing artist and believes whole-heartedly in both art making and story as foundations of being human. Teresa also serves in her private practice called Heart-to-Hand Healing. Information can be found at: www.h2hartstherapy.com.

Adult community members are invited to be part of an introductory art therapy group which combines both written and visual arts.

Art Therapy combines the creative process and psychotherapy, facilitating self-exploration and understanding. Using imagery, colour and shapes as part of the therapeutic process, thoughts and feelings can be expressed that would otherwise be hard to articulate.

Participants will use various art media such as collage, visual journaling, watercolour and fibre arts

Four sessions April 2,16, 23 and 30 – all 1-3 p.m.

Cost $120; Minimum six and maximum eight.
