Fresh Ingredients Workshop

Welcome to the Fresh Ingredients Expressive Arts Workshops.
I have combined my experience as a nurse practitioner, professional artist and expressive arts educational facilitator to create workshops specifically designed to promote health of the body, mind and spirit.

These workshops are named “Fresh Ingredients” because they all have the following special ingredients: freedom of expression, thoughtful exercises, creativity, authenticity, fun and support.

The following are some frequently asked questions about expressive arts and the workshops:
