Art Therapy: Enhancing Professional and Personal Practice
Jenne Newman & Allan Rosales

Workshop will take place at the Art Gallery of Calgary:
#117, 8th Avenue SW (Stephen Avenue Mall)


Come immerse yourself in art for a day! This one-day workshop will examine art processes from a cultural, clinical and personal perspective.  Participants will be given a guided tour of the gallery, as well as provided case examples of at-risk children who have engaged in an art therapy process. Participants will also engage in an art activity to deepen their personal and professional practice.  No previous art experience or talent is required for this workshop.  The day will also draw upon drama therapy techniques, breath & bodywork and a guided meditation. Please wear comfortable clothingthatyou can make art and move in. As the workshop is being held downtown, participants are asked to consider GREEN options and get dropped off, or take the c-train to the conference.
