Exploring Self through Expressive Arts
This weekly peer-led group allows high school students to work with art and explore new sides of themselves. As the group progresses we can explore topics such as body image, grief, relationships, and/or any topic that is expressed by the group. Artistic processes include, but are not limited to: collage, painting, drawing, clay, drumming, guitar, tag wall, and hot glass. We will also connect with our environment outdoors through hiking. All materials will be provided, including journal and art supplies. Drop-ins are welcome, and light refreshments will be provided.
This group session follows the school schedule, therefore if school is cancelled the group will be cancelled as well.
