Healing Art Making Workshops

As an art therapist, I strongly believe in the empowerment that comes from art and play, and the mental health benefits that stem from it. I am certain that all humans are artistic at heart, and that everyone can express themselves through art in their own unique way.

Everyone is welcome in my workshops regardless of skill level. I provide a calm, safe, meditative atmosphere, solid structure, gentle instructions, and absolute freedom to experiment.

All of my programs are available online and in-person.

I always preface my workshops with saying:

"I am not an art teacher. I am not here to teach you how to draw. I am here to make a space for the creativity that you already have within yourself".

"I had the opportunity to watch Natalie run a set of art therapy sessions at a retirement home with a group of seniors. It was amazing to see her engage with the participants and to see how each opened up to the experience. She engaged each individually and as a whole to create a very open and comfortable environment. Each participant came away with an uplifted attitude and talked about the session for a time after. They were so proud of their art! It was so valuable to them, and also to be able to watch. Thank you!"

Manifesting dreams

Duration: 2h

In this workshop, I will take you on a delightful adventure of dream manifestation through art making! In our creative space, we will make 3 very special collage cards to support your dreams.

This workshop is a structured art-making session for anyone who enjoys creative self-expression. No previous art experience or fancy supplies are necessary. The aim of the workshop is to allow you to connect with your dreams and assist you in the successful manifestation of the life you want to live. When you allow authentic images to emerge from within, they have the power to shift your mindset and emotions.

You may expect to engage on a few different levels: through individual art-making and journaling, guided visualization, practical teachings, the chat, and sharing in small groups. You will have time to explore the workshop content in any way you wish. While this session is structured to enhance flow, I trust that you will know exactly what to do.
