Have you been longing for an excuse to pull a Ms. Frizzle and "Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!"?

Join us for an evening of having way too much fun ripping up paper and making a mess with glue sticks, markers, and magazines. In this judgment-free space, you will learn how to use collaging as a tool to explore aspects of yourself and whatever might be weighing you down, so you can leave feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the next challenge. We will start the class with a brief check-in exercise to warm up the creative juices, and end with an opportunity to share. Feel free to come with some friends or a partner, or just your own lovely self. 

All collaging supplies are provided, but BYOB/BYOW. 
Remember: No artistic skills needed, just a willingness to have fun!

About the teacher:

Meira Shuman completed her Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Appalachian State University, where she discovered her love for Expressive Arts Therapy. While working in the mental health field, she found that the same tools she used with her clients could be modified for her own enjoyment and self-care. As someone who never considered herself an "artist," expressive arts, and especially collaging, became an opportunity for her to get lost in the flow of the creative process. She wants to share this valuable experience with others, to give them the space and tools to reflect, recharge, and reconnect with their inner child.
