By its very nature, art making is a problem solving activity. When we invite clients to use their creativity and make art in session we promote resilience and teach creative problem solving.  Learn to enliven your client’s inherent creativity, craft powerful art invitations, and increase your client’s creativity intelligence.  Through case studies examples you will learn specific art invitations, how and when to apply them, and how to have a constructive dialogue with your client once they’ve completed their art.   Through hands-on art activities you will experience the freedom, flexibility, and life affirming resilience that comes when we introduce art making into our work.
