This session encourages participants to think about what they want in their lives, and where their personal boundaries lie, by creating a scratch art door hanger, which can serve as a reminder of what they wish to allow into their life, home, and heart.
We invite you (kids and adults) to participate in one or all three healing art workshops offered this summer developed by A Window Between Worlds (AWBW). Creating art is a human right. Art honors and reflects multiple aspects of a person’s identity and personal experiences. No matter what our background, we all have the power to create —we just need to be offered the opportunity. The Windows Program provides this opportunity in a safe atmosphere.
The AWBW philosophy is grounded in the idea that the art workshops are a “Window of Time” — a safe, non-judgmental space where participants can authentically express their identity, hopes, dreams, experiences and truths. In this environment, participants can fully benefit from the process of creating art.
During a Windows workshop there is no right or wrong way. Whatever supports participants in expressing, connecting and attending to their needs and feelings is the number one priority. The Windows workshops are an opportunity for participants to practice how they want to live in the world. This includes asking for what they need and choosing to share as much or as little as they want. All materials will be provided, and no artistic ability is required. Sessions will be streamed on Zoom (link to be provided) for those who cannot attend in person.
