Workshop: Painting as a Healing Tool

All the arts have a healing capacity. In this workshop, artist and community mental health clinician Dana Dart-McLean shares histories of painting as a healing tool before leading experiential exercises derived from Expressive Art Therapy, designed to increase mindfulness and a sense of flow and to encourage new relationships to painting as a process rather than an outcome.

Dart-McLean trained in Expressive Art Therapy (EXA) at California Institute of Integral Studies. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally, most recently in group shows at Et Al Etc. Gallery and Altman Siegel Gallery in San Francisco.
