Self-Care, Healing and Replenishment through the Arts

May 14, 2016 - 10:00am

Through a participatory multi-disciplinary approach, experience processes which utilize the arts as a vehicle for reflection and a tool to support healing from loss, trauma, secondary trauma and compassion fatigue. Lunch included.

ArtWell’s workshops introduce educators and youth service providers to our unique approach, which combines creative expression and reflection to provide new tools for engaging young people, as well as a sense of replenishment, joy, and community for the professionals who participate.

Through hands-on arts activities, participants will experience how poetry, visual art and music encourage youth to become aware of their inner resilience, to have a greater respect for cultural diversity, build literacy skills and academic engagement, and to value their own voices, visions, and creative spirit.

ArtWell workshops are designed for care-giving professionals: educators, teaching-artists, youth workers, organizers and activists, social service and public health providers, faith-based organizations, community and arts administrators, organizational leadership and supervisors.

*We also offer grant-funded workshops at no cost to groups and organizations when available. Paying at the higher end of the spectrum supports ArtWell’s ability to provide arts-based programming for youth and to work with other groups/organizations at little to no cost. We are happy to work with your group/organization to figure out strategies to raise/leverage financial resources. Submit your request by completing the Booking Request Form on this page.
