December Schedule for Expressive Arts Florida
Expressive Arts Florida Institute schedule includes a variety of creative programs for adults and children. Located in the artist colony of Towles Court, all programs are designed to develop creative life skills for personal, professional and social change.
Expressive Arts encompasses visual art, movement, writing, music, drama and other creative processes that combine and interact to bring about growth, healing and wellness. It does not require art training or “talent” in art and is more about the process of being creative than the product that results. Expressive Arts has many benefits, including self-awareness, relaxation, self-esteem, mindfulness, balance, joy and healing.
Established in 2007, Expressive Arts Florida Institute was founded on a firm belief in the positive power of every person’s creativity. The organization is committed to the practice, education, advocacy and expansion of Expressive Arts in the community and beyond. Its programs offer opportunities for vital creative expression to diverse people of all ages and life circumstances, fostering wellbeing, community building and positive social and global change. Faculty/partners are: Kathleen Horne, MA, LMHC, REACE; Victoria Domenichello-Anderson, MA, REACE; and Tamara Teeter Knapp, BA, Certified K-12 Art Teacher.
