Instructor Joan Wiens
I am a certified Therapeutic Art Life Coach as well as an End-of-Life Facilitator. I have a unique approach to using art-making as a coping mechanism for difficult emotions. Through art, we explore and discover many things in our subconscious that need to be expressed, only words just don't work or can't be found. Art-making provides a "safe" place where we can let our imagination express "us" to ourselves, and learn to deal with things we can't control or need to let go. No judgment is allowed in classes. It is all about process, not about making a museum-quality work of art.
