The Calming Box - An Expressive Arts Play shop
This workshop is more of a “play shop”, using art to creatively explore and engage with yourself in a new way.
Do you sometimes find yourself derailed by big emotions like anxiety, sadness and/or fear?
In this artistic play shop you will create a ‘calming box’ to help bring balance, comfort and self-care back into your day.
Facilitators Linzy Bonham, MSW, RSW and Supria Karmakar, MSW, RSW will guide you with:
Examples of effective calming resources you can include in your calming box
Discussion of self-calming and its benefits
Art techniques using acrylic paints, glazes, glues, mixed media, papers and embellishments to use on your calming box
You will leave with a tangible, personal and meaningful resource for your self-care.
All materials and light refreshments will be provided. You are also welcome to bring personal images, tools and mementos for your box. No artistic experience is necessary. Friday begins with planning followed by a full day on Saturday to complete the project.
Dates: Friday October 27th, 6-9pm and Saturday October 28th 10-4 pm
Cost: $225 Limited spots. For more information or to register email: email@example.com
