Creative Break

Creative Break

In March, when my business suddenly changed, like most everyone else’s,  I was no longer facilitating in-house art therapy groups. I felt a deep loss.

Maggie’s Inaugural Wellness Workshop

Maggie’s Inaugural Wellness Workshop

“Exploration,” “fun,” “inspired,” “hopeful,” “freeing” and “finding my voice” were just a few of the comments about our first Wellness Workshop on Maggie. Wearing Art Lab aprons, participants were invited to snoop in the desks to find out what they contained and how the easel option worked. There were many “oohs” and “aahs” as materials were discovered and desk operations…
