Art as Therapy Support Group - 10 week, open group

  • Art of Balance 1409 W Irving Park Rd Chicago, IL 60613 (map)

Art is more than a creative outlet, art becomes a voice for your personal experience of the world - art becomes the catalyst that opens an internal door to your innovation and creativity that may not be accessible initially. Art of Balance is offering a space for people looking to tap into this part of you for a complete expression of yourself and to allow play to re-enter into your life. Additionally, for emotions expressed through art making, art also becomes a container for experiences that are difficult to communicate or express in words alone.

This Art as Therapy Support Group will begin on Monday, June 11, from 6:30P - 8:30P and will occur on 6/18, 6/25, 7/2, 7/9, 7/16, 7/30, 8/6, 8/13, and until the last session, August 20. The max number of participants during any given session is 6 people. As this group is open, interested participants may join the group at any time, following a brief interview with Jade and then an RSVP for specific dates. Those who've participated in an earlier session will receive priority to reserve their seat for three days following their last session (every Thursday, 9:30P CT) before new participants are invited to join the group. Those on a waitlist for the support group will be contacted in order of received requests to join the next group session.

Those who participate in 7 out of 10 total sessions will have the opportunity to showcase artwork at our location for the month of August 2018.

As Jade's support groups are a unique, safe space to discover harmony and connection within themselves and with their community members, prior RSVP a day before the event and a brief 15 minute interview with Jade is required. Please request Jade through our office line (872-201-8326) and request participation in an active or upcoming Art as Therapy support group. As space is limited, secure your space today!
