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.
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.
