Art & Heart: Expressive Art Workshops 2019

At the historic Old Court House Arts Center in Woodstock, Illinois

Art & Heart Workshops allow participants an experience of creative renewal, fun, and connection with self and others.

You will be encouraged to listen to your own creative intuition using different art media for exploration and personal growth.

Each class is designed with an art project that targets specific outcomes such as creative fun, peace, joy, purpose, gratitude, clarity etc.
There is no art making experience necessary and all supplies are included!
Basic art techniques will be briefly taught but this workshop is more about following your creative intuition and applying personal meaning to your artwork.
Workshops are facilitated by me, Linda Ziert, a Registered Art Therapist with over seventeen years of experience leading groups for healing and personal growth.
