Tween & Teen 4-Week Art-Based Workshops coming up in January 2023: Anxiety-Healing, Sadness-Healing and Confidence-Building.
Hello KWUW Fam!
As a Kreative Self-Love Coach and Master Degree Art Therapist, I have learned that art is so important in our healing and for our well-being. That is why I kreated these three workshops for tweens and teens to give them a space where they can learn about mental health, self-express, alleviate heaviness while building and improving on their inner self... to be more confident and comfortable with who they are!

More Info on Workshops:
There are different time frames (EST) available for each groups starting in January 2023: tweens ages 9 to 12 and teens ages 13 to 17. Please go under the Services, then to Kid & Teen Workshops to learn more and register.
Each workshop is limited to 5 participants. Being this workshop is very interactive and personable, I found the group members feel more comfortable sharing and opening up in a smaller group setting.
For each class, I intend that your tween/teen can have a personal space where there are not many distractions. This class is designed to be personable for the tween/teen to self-express and share their hearts. If they are able to be set up in a private room, this will enhance the class for the teen and the other members in the group.
If you have any questions, thoughts or comments, please feel free to reach out! I look forward to connecting with your tween and teen!
In Deep Gratitude,
Dianne Furphy, MS
