4Week Art Therapy Intensive

What if you could use your creativity and a few minutes a day to be happier?

I know how much these techniques have helped me over the years so I've developed a 4-week intensive art therapy program connecting art and neuroscience to increase your happiness. The methods are a combination of art therapy and neuroscience based on research about our ability to change our brain, to reduce our stress and anxiety, and increase our self-awareness and mindfulness, which all leads to increased happiness.

Each week you will receive an art therapy experiential that you will be invited to repeat each day for at least 5 minutes. The weeks build on each other so by the time you get to the fourth lesson, you will be practicing these techniques for about 20 minutes each day and developing a strong self-care routine for yourself.

This IS for you if:
* you are committed to making changes - at least 20 minutes each day
* you are serious about creating more happiness in your life
* you understand that you need to do the work and you're excited about it!

This is NOT for you if:
* you expect a quick fix
* you only want to work on your well-being once per week
* you cannot commit at least 20 minutes each day

The program at a glance:

1. Mindfulness : how does being mindful affect our brain? Visually express what you can and can't control

2. Mandala : daily art - why is it important? Learn to create your own mandala

3. Gratitude : how can an attitude of gratitude benefit us? Create your own gratitude journal

4. Journaling : create a Daily Visual Journal to decrease anxiety

A few supplies you will need:
week 1: pencil and paper (templates provided for you to print at home)
week 2: paper (templates provided for you to print at home) any drawing tools: pencil, markers, colored pencils...
week 3: watercolor paper and paints, paper (templates provided for you to print at home), stapler
week 4: paper (cardstock works well), pencil, other art materials

I am an artist and a registered art therapist. I use art on a daily basis as my own self-care. Self-care is not selfish or a luxury, it is necessary for us to be our best selves and necessary for us to be able to care for ourselves and our family. Using art for self-care is the intentional action of making art to reduce stress or to decrease anxiety, to distract yourself from pain (physical or emotional), and to feel joy. A creative self-care routine is the best habit you can create!

Mindful Art Center is my art therapy company providing private art therapy sessions in home, corporate presentations and workshops, and online workshops. I provide art therapy services to children, adolescents, and adults to reduce anxiety and depression, and to develop coping skills.
