Art of Being
Art of Being
Mindfulness and creativity are at the heart of the Art of Being program at Wellspring Women’s Center. This innovative and unique program offers something for everyone, from a 30-minute blast at the Craft Club table to a longer commitment in an intensive expressive therapy group. Whatever creative goals women have, we strive to meet them through our workshops, coaching, outreach, and sharing. Painting, Drawing, Crochet, Sewing, Knitting, Henna Design, Jewelry Making, Beadwork, Silk Scarf Painting, Paper Crafts, and Ceramic Art are just a few of the art forms our participants have explored in Art of Being.
Expressive Therapy Group Intensives
Creative expression is a powerful tool to cultivate the positive qualities of mindfulness and insight. Being present in our lives can help us to tap into our inner strength and wisdom and increase our feelings of well-being and joy.
In this innovative program, we explore our creativity using a combination of activities such as art, poetry, dance, music, journaling, and more. Using a different area of focus in each session, we will work to discover imaginative ways of expressing our thoughts and emotions. Sessions are team-taught by a licensed clinical social worker and an artist and will be limited to 16 participants. Open to all women, and art experience is not necessary.
