This program will be led by expressive arts counselor and associate therapist Alexandra “Xan” Morris.
His art therapy program is for adults living with epilepsy. This strength’s based program provides an opportunity for participants to explore their creativity, learn new coping skills and build community in an open, accepting and safe group setting.
No art experience is necessary. This expressive arts program will include a variety of art materials and modalities, including but not limited to: watercolor paint, acrylic paint, water-soluble oil pastels, collage, decoupage, and mosaic.
Please join us for this amazing mind and heart expanding opportunity! This program is not about creating “good” art. It’s about learning new skills, expressing ourselves in non-verbal ways, accessing deeper emotions, alleviating stress and anxiety and building new, meaningful relationships. “Good Art” is just a byproduct of having a good time!
