Art can often be a therapeutic and effective way to communicate what you may be unable to say out loud. Helping you relax and break away from the worries and responsibilities of everyday life, drawing enables you to feel free and let your creativity flow. In these workshops co-hosted by Mountainside and the School of Visual Arts (NYC), you will be led through drawing exercises that will help you heal, grow, and dive into the underlying messages within your art.

Next Event:

Nourish to Flourish

Join the MPS Art Therapy Program at the School of Visual Arts and Mountainside for a guided drawing workshop designed to help you develop deeper self-awareness and nourish your soul.

Materials Needed:

No artistic experience is necessary. All you need is whatever you prefer to write, draw, and color with. Your imagination will provide the rest!

  • pens, pencils, crayons, or watercolors
  • some paper (notebook, construction, printer, etc.)
