Many people lose their relationship with art making as they grow up. With this loss, there is often a loss of play, self-expression, and confidence with art materials. Coupled with our society’s focus on perfection, our language around art making can become critical and invalidating unintentionally.

Caregiver and Little One Workshop participants walk away with the understanding that any interaction that you have using art with your child can be a therapeutic moment. Caregiver(s) and children have opportunities to use basic art materials, make art, learn about silent witnessing, and discuss non-judgmental ways to approach both the process and product of art making.

Caregivers are reacquainted with art materials with the intention of connecting through play. They have opportunities to build confidence in art making and engage with non-judgmental language used around the process and product of art making.
