This small group workshop based upon the theories and methods of Expressive Arts Therapy will take place once a month. In it, I hope we can open up to ourselves, just a little. We will use different artforms to coax unexpected, strange, and delightful things out of these openings. If we are lucky, the unexpected, strange, and delightful things that come out may even try to coax us back in.
