You do not need to have any art making experience to participate. You do not need to consider yourself an ‘artist,’ although I do consider us all to be inherently creative.
The focus is on process, exploration, discovery and yes, even play!
You will need internet access and a device to connect to zoom.
For basic supplies you will need:
-blank paper (could be computer paper or a stronger multimedia or watercolour paper, 8 x11″ – 18×24″)
-crayons (either wax, oil pastel or chalk)
-paint (either watercolour, tempura or acrylic)
-pencil or pen
-glue or tape
-collage materials like old magazines, books, paper
-found items like rocks, feathers, sticks
-scrap fabric, yarn, string, cardboard recycling
-clay or polymer clay
-anything you like to create with that feels like a ‘yes’ to you!
Once you sign-up through Eventbrite you will be sent an e-mail with all of the information you will need includeing the zoom link and an additional registration page.
This group will kept to under 12 participants. It will be interactive and intimiate and time will spent cultivating a safe space together for sharing and exploring. Sharing is also optional during the group, but is highly encouraged.
This group will not be recorded for purposes of privacy and confidentiality, so if you are unable to attend there will not be a recording.
About the facilitator
My name is Katrina Grabner. I live as a visitor on the unceded Ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples, the Squamish, Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and Musqueam Nations, also known as Vancouver, BC, Canada. I work towards self-awareness of my own role in colonization and am committed to the daily work of being a co-conspirator and ally in decolonization.
I have an MA in Psychotherapy and Spirtuality with a specialization in Art Therapy (qualifying period for CCC & BCATA registration). I work full time as a trauma therapist supporting adults and children. I am passionate about creativity and the power of the arts to support us in our healing journeys. As someone on their own journey of healing and growth, I honour your courage and the path that has brought you here. I practice from a collaborative, attachment based, trauma aware, somatically informed, arts centred, anti-oppressive framework.
