Therapeutic Art Workshops

The GW Art Therapy Program is offering a variety of free, virtual community art workshops designed for stress management, coping with the unknown, self-expression, making connections and other useful topics. Graduate art therapy students will be the facilitators, and no art experience is necessary. Sign up for one workshop, or a series; workshops are designed for kids, teens, college students, or adults. Supplies can be whatever you have around the house, and a list is included with each workshop.
