Virtual Creative Processing for Families: Uncertainty

Reflect together on big (and sometimes tough) ideas about the world and ourselves through art. This virtual workshop includes a guided group conversation about works of art with an expressive arts therapist and hands-on art making with a focus on exploration.

How do you prepare when you don’t know how something will turn out? Together we’ll look at Alison Saar’s sculpture Tippy Toes and discuss ways we can approach the unknown, go with the flow, and cope when the unexpected happens.
