Make Your Mark

Make Your Mark

We are born to create. It’s in our DNA. We were made in the image of the Master Artist himself, yet we often discount what is innate by saying “oh, I’m not good at art,” “I can’t draw” or “I’m not creative.” Maybe we narrow the definition of creativity to artistic ability alone.

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…

It is a joy to introduce you to Maggie, the Art Lab Rx mobile art therapy studio — especially during the holiday season.
