Give yourself a chance to RELAX, REFLECT and RECONNECT with yourself (and others) through art.

ARTICHOKE STUDIO and ONE WIG STAND invite you to take part in a unique art therapy workshop to delve deeper into matters of importance to you and reshape your cancer experience.

“Art Therapy is a mental health profession in which clients, facilitated by the Art Therapist, use art media, the creative process, and the resulting artwork to explore their feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety, and increase self-esteem.” – American Art Therapy Association, 2015

Through art-making and intimate group discussions, the workshop aims to help each participant express her emotions, and gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of herself. In a playful and nonjudgmental environment, important issues will be tackled through different artistic mediums (such as drawings, collage, clay, etc.).

Sessions will be lead by Myra Saad – M.A. in Art Therapy & Mental Health Counseling.

The workshop will provide you an opportunity to:

  • Relax, play and get distracted from any pain you may feel.
  • Express any emotions that may be difficult to verbalize.
  • Build your self-esteem and strengthen your body image.
  • Cope better with stress, grief, fear, anxiety and depression.
  • Become more self-aware of your emotions and needs.
  • Communicate and interact more effectively with your family and surroundings.
  • Connect with others who are going through or have been through a similar experience and find comfort, freedom and hope through this support network.

Keep in mind:

  • No prior experience in art is required to take part in, or benefit from, art therapy.
  • Confidentiality is highly respected.
  • The sessions gradually build up on each other, creating a trusting and intimate atmosphere. It’s therefore important that the participants do their best to be on time and commit to all the 8 sessions.
  • Comfortable clothes are recommended.
  • If you’re not feeling particularly well during one of the session as a result of your treatment, you may take part at your own pace and do what makes you feel comfortable.
