Art & Photo Therapy Workshops

Adult Workshops

Group workshops can be a lot of things including fun!  But more importantly they are wonderful opportunities for self-expression, self-reflection, and change. 

 

In addition to this, group workshops are a great way to build trust, uncover new ideas, learn about various art materials, and make new relationships. 

PYW has a number of creative workshops and drop-ins on the horizon.  With a newly renovated bright and welcoming studio space, workshops are scheduled to begin again this September.  

 

Be sure to check back regularly for new workshops and detailed information.  In light of recent events, space is limited to 8 participants per in studio workshop and 20 participants per outdoor workshop.  Email today to reserve your spot!

When we think of mental health we don't often think of children.  However did you know that about 1 in 10 children suffer with depression, anxiety and conduct disorder as a direct result of what is happening in their lives.  How's that for an eye opener!

"He's going through a phase or she'll grow out of it" are common statements adults use to justify or explain away a child's moods, reactions or behaviours.  The tendency is to be too quick in labelling a child's behaviour without giving it the proper and necessary consideration.   

This is why self-expression through art is probably one of the greatest gifts you could ever give or teach a child.  It's benefits are huge and invaluable.  Whether it be paint, pastel, clay or photography, each creative medium holds the potential to support and assist a child in any and all areas of their life.
