Kids: This experiential group will give older elementary students strategies to cope with daily stressors, vocabulary to describe and communicate their feelings and thoughts, and a community to feel accepted in.

Music, Movement and Mindfulness: Middle School Girls Identity Workshop
Through a combination of music, art, mindfulness and movement experiences and group discussion a safe and supportive environment is created for girls to learn, trust, and appreciate their mind and body. Group topics focus on identity development, building self-confidence and self-compassion, and helping girls navigate the transitions of early adolescence. From peer & family relationships, to body image and a rapidly changing sense of self, these groups help girls celebrate their unique selves and foster healthy friendships. No experience in the arts necessary. $40
Creative Arts Birthing Workshop for Expectant Parents and Birth Professionals
Being creative throughout pregnancy, birth and postpartum is an essential part of the journey from expectant parent all the way through labor and birth. Parents will learn how to create a birth playlist for all stages of labor, write a lullaby and participate in several creative arts activities. This workshop will give birth professionals an overview of the appropriate use of music for all stages of labor, a variety of art exercises to encourage expectant parents to visualize through a creative medium, and a beginners guide to the composition of a lullaby. This workshop is led by Megan Martin, MA, MT-BC.
