SOS Open Studio time allows for the community to have a FREE space to create in a safe and nurturing environment with a trained art therapist available for guidance and support. The open studio process begins with each person formulating and writing an intention. This grounds and focuses the art-making that will follow. Intentions are personal and specific to each participant, guided by their own therapeutic needs. Next, art making techniques are introduced. All art materials are provided: oil pastels, paints, objects, and a variety of other materials. Our studio provides accessible media in an inviting array, ready and waiting for use. Our space is a safe, open place to be creative with no art experience required. Sponsored in honor of Sarah Davenport. RSVP to 972-544-6633
Art making and poetry were important to Sarah in managing her mental health. She expressed her story through her artwork and many journals. She had a desire to share her story if it would help others who suffer find relief. Sarah loved Batman and the color red. These gave her a sense of comfort and safety. The SOS group chose to use the symbol of the red bat signal. The red bat signal is a special way that Batman would call out for support from his closest allies. SOS Open Studio calls out to those in our community who need support. SOS Open Studio meets once per month for 2 hours.
Join an art therapist and make art in a safe space. No previous art experience required.

For some children, being in foster care or on the path to adoption can feel like a lonely journey. Meeting other girls on a similar path can be a healing and hope inspiring opportunity. In this safe space, girls ages 8-10 are invited to participate in art therapy with the following goals:
• Improving social skills
• Making and keeping friends
• Using creativity to problem solve
• Expressing feelings in safe ways
• Peer to peer collaboration
