11:30a-1:30p- Exfoliating Trauma Through Art with @ancestral.girl (rsvp requested but not required)

“In this workshop, we will be talking about the process of unraveling our inner traumatic events that hinder our growth process. We will be using canvas, Glass bottles (upcycle), poetry, or any medium of art that is helpful in our journey.

Art Therapy is all about embarking on a creative process to explore our emotions, where anxiety could be stemming from, and how to resolve or assist in psychological conflicts.” PG-13
2:30p-4:30p- Artist Workshop with @finnhaigfineart and @xpieters 

“Connect with the artist community! Bring your portfolio, something you’re working on, your ideas, or just yourself! Get feedback, give feedback, work on a project, or just come for dialogue. Family-friendly projects will also be available. Let’s immerse in our creative community together!” PG
