Art Therapy

For the past few years I have been working as a sort of art therapist, traveling to assisted living facilities and teaching hour-long art workshops. If you are interested in my services, I can offer references from Homestead Hospice, where I also work part-time.

Workshops I teach/assist include:

Pencil drawing(learning about negative space and different pencil darknesses too)

Watercolor(often we complete a simple flower or bird)

Pastels and Oil Pastels(simple like crayon drawing, but a bit more sophisticated)

Marker/crayon coloring(mostly for memory care in which I draw anything the student wishes, then let them color as they please)

Fingerprint character cartoons (these encourage being silly!)

Collage

Q Tip Painting(painting with tiny dots)

Colored Pencil

 

and various craft projects, sometimes seasonal.

I have experience with Memory Care residents as well and often work with them through Homestead, where I perform puppets for them or do much simpler workshops, tailored to what their abilities are.
