Why choose an Art Seminar?

Art seminars allow participants to fully experience the depth of art as healing. An important aspect of a seminar is the physical gathering of participants. This shared meeting and time of creating ushers in a sense of belonging and safety.

Opportunities to laugh, engage and physically move with others in a neutral space begins to loosen the grip trauma has on lives.  Making mistakes is no longer a concern. Exploring together, on the same level of creativity, spans the gulf of fear and shame. This new found confidence then welcomes participants back to safety and the vibrance of life.

Art Clinics can provide similar benefits during a shorter time span. An Art Seminar provides a chance to form new and healthy friendships that may carry over into future relationships for support. When participants share time with others walking through similar difficulties, encouragement and positive reinforcement aligns the many benefits being created within the brain. New memories are formed that help bring harmony and fulfilment, replacing negative thoughts and eroding memories of past trauma. 

Who is an Art Seminar for?

An Art Seminar may be introduced for weekend retreats, women’s groups, Health and Wellness Centers, Yoga Studios or even groups of friends. There is no set qualifier for a seminar. In some instances, the seminar may need to be gender specific depending on previous trauma experienced by the participants.

What an Art Seminar is not.

Art Seminars are not conducive to the paint party atmosphere. Alcohol is not offered during a seminar. There are no accomodations IN the seminar for children due to the nature of the seminar. Childcare may be provided by the hosting agent of the seminar but that is not part of the seminar package. Art Seminars and Clinics are not comprehensive art classes focused on technical skills or art theory.
