Mandala Art Therapy Workshops
“Mandala means circle in Sanskrit. The mandala design radiates out from the center. It is ancient and universal in cultures everywhere. It is the “magic circle” and has ritual and religious symbolism. Here, it is intended as a drawing meditation for centering and integrating the self. In times of confusion or stress it is a way of “collecting ones thoughts.” The Creative Journal Lucia Cappachione.

Visit Us At Our Studio, Or We Can Come To You!
Art Therapy Studio offers private workshops and one-off programs such as employee wellness workshops, staff retreats, and presentations for a fee of $400 an hour for up to 20 people, art supplies included. Our workshops are designed to meet the specific goals of each group. The art therapist will base each session to meet the appropriate developmental, cognitive, and emotional needs of the participants. Focus will be placed on emotional identification and regulation, building self-esteem, developing positive coping skills, and using art as an expressive tool. Basic art skills and techniques will be introduced to promote success in using media for self-expression. The art therapist will then expand the projects to address specific concerns through the process of making art.
