This workshop is sponsored by the Art Therapy Institute and is offered by Stacey Hayes, MA, MPA, LPC and Bridget Pemberton-Smith, MA, ATR-BC.

The seasons offer an opportunity to reflect on how self care changes during life’s seasons and nature’s rhythms. In this workshop series, we will use the expressive arts to explore autumn themes such as harvest and gratitude as well as hibernation and turning inward as we approach winter. Join us to practice self care and enjoy comforting art activities. No previous art experience is necessary
