Otherwise, here are the answers that you may be looking for:

What can I expect at an Art4Healing® Workshop?

An Art4Healing® workshop allows participants to get in touch with inner feelings that many times words cannot express. A facilitator leads participants through a series of prompts as they respond by painting abstractly with acrylic colors on canvas. The method helps participants express their feelings in a safe way by associating a color with a feeling. Each participant takes home 3 completed paintings at the end of the workshop.

Do I need previous art experience?

NO! Previous art experience isn’t necessary! Some workshops require you to have taken a previous Art4Healing workshop, but you do not have to be an artist to create with us.

Where are your workshops?

All of our workshops are held exclusively at our Southern California studio:

23011 Moulton Parkway
Suite I-5
Laguna Hills, CA 92653

How long are the workshops?

Each workshop is 3 hours long unless otherwise noted

Who leads the workshops?

All workshops are led by certified Art for Healing facilitators. Although workshops are therapeutic, we are not art therapists. Participants are free to create and express without facilitator interpretation.

How much is the workshop and supplies?

All art supplies are included, and each workshop is $55 unless noted otherwise.

What should I wear?

Please wear comfortable clothing you wouldn’t mind getting paint on—don’t worry, we’ll provide an apron!

Will I take home some art?

Participants will be able to create and take home 3 paintings – all done with acrylic paint on canvas. The Art4Healing® method teaches participants a way to say things with color and paint when there are no words.

What are other students saying?

We’re glad you asked!

Like Going Back to Preschool

“I have attended several Art4Healing workshops and they have all been GREAT! They are fun, relaxing, enlightening, and totally cathartic. Don't worry if you're not an artist--it's like going back to preschool, just having fun with colors. I always learn something new about myself, and leave feeling so much better. Try this unique experience and see for yourself!”
