Starts April 18. Meets for 6 weeks.
Is there a story you've dreamed of telling? A character you yearn to create? How does playing the roles we dream of change us? In this 6-session workshop we will write and perform solo work—either building one long-form piece through the six sessions or exploring multiple characters. Each session will include a writing prompt, a chance to share or perform what you've written, and the possibility to continue writing through the week if you choose to. We'll also reflect on how these roles speak to and through us, what it means to embody these voices, and what we can discover when we listen to them.

Have an idea for a new group? We have the resources and the motivation to add new workshops or therapy groups. If there is something you'd like to learn more about, please e-mail us. We'll listen and try to make it happen.

Fantastic! [the class] really illuminated the process approach which is fundamental in art therapy. I can't say enough good things - I feel grateful for participating and being a part of it!
