I loved the class – the drawing and expression.

What I liked best was that I had time to focus on me!

I loved how the drawing helped me to express myself.

I enjoyed talking with others and sharing stories about self-care. I learned a lot about what I need to take care!

I loved the group activities and working together as a group.

Thank you for listening to us and giving us time to reflect and share. Invaluable!

The workshop was unlike anything I expected — I liked that I was able to express myself artistically.

Amazing and kind of life changing. Thank you!

Friendly House Community Center

What teachers had to say:

Drawing activities were insightful and I could see how it would help children to express their emotions.

I always need reminders to keep positive – thanks for the reminder!

The workshop made me aware of the connection between drawing and expressing oneself. And now I plan to pay more attention to the children’s art-making process.

I found it very helpful and insightful — I learned a lot about the mind-body connection and how that awareness can help me with stress.
