Program Description

About this event:

A lot of people think they can’t participate in Art Therapy because they “can’t draw a stick figure.”

But Art Therapy is about true expression, not beauty.  Our ugly sides - the feelings and personality traits that we dislike and fear most in ourselves - are also the gateway to authenticity.  Learning to connect with and listen to these parts of ourselves is vital to self-growth.

In our time together we’ll privately define aspects of our own ‘ugly’ sides, learn how they’re vital to our wholeness, and use art materials to let them express their ugliness.

You’ll be so satisfied to see how ugly your art can be! The bravery & inspiration you find in this workshop will add new depth to your creative practices.


The denial of darkness never equates the abundance of light. And the denial of your actual character never equates to the reality of your best character.
