Open Art Groups

Open Art Groups – alternate Saturdays. Sometimes you might want to work on your own stuff alone… but not entirely alone. And sometimes you might just need a check-in. The energy of open studio art groups is really what you make of it. You can choose to contribute to discussion, or you can choose to sit and absorb the energy quietly on your own. If you are interested in art therapy and not yet ready to make a commitment to a group, this is a great opportunity to see what it’s all about. As facilitator I will offer individual guidance while also attending to the needs of the group as a whole, offering topics for discussion if appropriate while respecting individual choices. I’ll bring support and encouragement while meeting you where you’re at. I provide the materials, you bring the intention – even if that means the intention to play, be curious and have fun. Open studios are offered to women who experience anxiety, depression and/or eating disorders – you’re sure to find peers whom you’ll connect with on some level – and know that you’re not alone. ** Please not that the Open Art Groups are largely unstructured groups – I do not offer specific art tasks to the group as a whole.

Upcoming Dates for Open Art Groups 2018:

Alternate Saturdays from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

March 17

March 31

April 14

Open art groups will be held at Herman St. Studios: 20 E Herman St, Philadelphia, 19144. This is a drop-in group however, you will need to check for space and confirm your attendance by the day before. Open studios will be held on alternate Saturdays from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm. $25 per person, per group. This is a great option if you’re curious to learn more about art therapy, if you’d like to supplement the treatment you’re already getting elsewhere, of if you just find yourself in need of some short-term support. I will need a commitment from at least 3 group members before confirming that group will run each time (an email will be sent the night before to all who sign up) and group is limited to 10 members.
