“Creativity is the way I share my soul with the world”
The goal of Creative Courage Studio is to promote a deeper sense of community and connection by sharing stories with each other through art. This sharing begins with a willingness to be creative, a non-judgemental approach, and encouragement. Each participant creates the meaning to their own artwork. Art Therapy is a non-verbal approach to expression. Each session is led by an art therapist who focuses on the confidentiality and care of all participants. Creative Courage Studio is inclusive and accepts all ethnicities, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, status, etc.

“Creative Courage Studio’s has been providing art therapy for Alzheimer’s memory care residents at our Assisted Living Facility. The residents are enjoying using art.
