Art Speaks offers experiences to reconnect with one's innate creativity through playful engagement in expressive arts.



We provide online and on location services that facilitate personal wellbeing through creative expression. Expressive arts practices are beneficial for all ages . They help ease people into experiencing emotion and use art as a healthy outlet for containing and managing their emotions.


Our experiential workshops are suitable for both individuals and organizations and result in renewed vitality and personal wellbeing.The forms of expressive arts we use in our sessions combine (but are not limited to) the following:


Visual arts ( drawing, painting, sculpting, collage, craft)

Writing ( journaling, poetry, short stories)

Photography (viewing, taking)

Music (listening, creating)


Exploring a variety of facilitated art processes allows a person to identify which form of expression best suits them.
