Number 1

Tap into creativity

Set your imagination free to explore your feelings, thoughts, concerns for yourself and for others. You don’t have to be an artist. No prior skill is necessary. All you need is to be open to try and create.

Number 2

Connect with a community

Sometimes it can be hard to meet new people or make connections. Here is a safe and inclusive place where we are all exploring our inner selves and helping each other. We are on all the same path of self-discovery.

Number 3

Build life skills

We are here to help you learn how to cope with stress, anxiety, trauma, and other things that may affect your mental health. At our workshops, we use creative skills to practice emotional expression in a creative way.
