The Wellness Sessions

Heather Trotter
Online Class via Zoom
Thurs 6:30 - 8:30pm (no class Nov 11)
Nov 4 - Dec 16, 2021 (6 weeks)

The Wellness Sessions have been created to help you cultivate joy and rekindle the spark that lights you up. Whether you have experienced mental health barriers in the past or are dealing with challenging emotions now, this class is for you. No previous art experience necessary!

Having a creative outlet and a community of like-minded people can help to ease feelings of loneliness and isolation while providing fun ways to manage stress. Life and art are so interconnected. You will be amazed at what you create when you let your intuition guide the way.

In this 6 week program, Heather will guide you through a variety of activities incorporating mindfulness into each class so you have a new technique to add to your toolbox each week.
