Seeing myself now – imagining myself tomorrow.

This two-day workshop offers participants a chance to pause and reflect on how they are feeling right now, as well as imagining their future selves in a safe and nurturing space. 

Art therapy is for self-exploration, as no-one else can interpret your artwork; only you know what you think and feel and express through the art.

With the guidance of Jaana Sahling, participants will get to explore different mediums and complete expressive exercises to acknowledge and reflect on their current and future visions of themselves.
