Emotions Through Art is an art therapy group for college students and young adults processing COVID-19 emotions, such as grief and anxiety.
The group is a safe, confidential space that will provide you with peers to listen and grow closely with. I will be facilitating art directives that symbolically allow the feelings to pass through. For example, the phrase “emotions are like waves that come and go” may be examined as a moment for us to meditate and process an emotion moving through us and being released through the creative process. This can be done through the metaphor, abstractly or literally.
Participants will be encouraged to use materials that are accessible at home. These can be simple, such as a piece of paper that can be transformed through tearing and being pieced back together. Additionally, no art skills are required to participate in thisart therapy group; it is a safe space to express yourself freely and authentically through the clinical guidance of the art therapist.
This is a remote group facilitated by Juliette Hayt, a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist, at Repose.
