Expressive Arts Workshops, In-Services, and Custom Offerings

Expressive Arts Workshops and In-Services 

Workshops for wellness include presentations that deal with pain management, stress reduction, or relaxation techniques through active music-making or music listening. Drum circle workshops promote community and wellness, and are fun team-building activities for business meetings and conferences.    


Let Us Design an Offering for You!
The Expressive Arts Department will form new classes based upon demand. Potential class topics could include the following:

  • Movement with Music and Art

  • My Life Story Through Art 

  • Sharing Memories with Music for Alzheimer’s Patients & Their Families

Feel free to ask us about how Music, Dance, and Art therapy can help someone you love:

  • People living with Alzheimer’s may improve their ability to connect with others by engaging in the creative process. Music eases memory-impairment by recovering forgotten memories. Our music and art therapists can provide interventions to reduce agitation and anxiety.

  • People living with Autism are often musical and very creative beings. Expressive arts can improve verbal communication, executive functioning, and self-regulatory skills.

  • People in Hospice can receive music therapy and art therapy services. Dance and movement to music and the memories it elicits can ease the pain and create a sweet space where families come together to celebrate in the midst of tears and sadness. The music therapy interventions are designed by the therapist for each individual, caring for each family in a unique way.
