A pop-up event! Come experience the fusion of art. All local adult artists will be invited to produce and experience poetry, art, and music together. All participants, who share similar fears and anxieties, are able to use art as an outlet for their emotions with no limitations. Open mic performances on stage, along with attendees participating in expressive painting on shoes bring together this “Finding Your Sole” experience.
Though the team at The 296 Project doesn't offer Art Therapy directly, it is very much at the core of what we do to provide the resources to a program participant who is in need.
We believe that Art Therapy, as in any form of creative expression, can give our program participants a voice where they may not have had one before. The tenets of art therapy involve humanism, creativity, reconciling emotional conflicts, fostering self-awareness, and personal growth.
