HEY SHAUNA


ART THERAPY

Art therapy is the intentional use of art-making to create an opportunity to express and better understand our emotions and our needs, and to create and nurture balance and well-being, within a space that is facilitated by an art therapist. It is grounded in the belief that creative process and self-expression help us to find ways to cope, to manage stress, depression, anxiety, mental health issues and the myriad of other un-eases that trip us up in our daily lives. It gives us the space and opportunity to express ourselves, without judgement or expectation.

No experience or knowledge of art materials is needed.

SHAUNA KAENDO

I am a mixed media artist and student art therapist (Vancouver Art Therapy Institute), and I am delighted beyond words about finding my way to the field of art therapy. My background is in fine arts (BFA from Emily Carr University), and design – and I have been running my own small design studio for the last 13 years where I’ve worked within the creative arts & culture, small business and non-profit communities.

I am super inspired by the possibilities around well-being, collaboration and community-building by way of active self-care, peer support and connection, art-making and creative expression. My personal approach to art-making and art therapy is grounded in an emphasis on process, play and exploration of materials. And the belief that we all have the potential (and capacity) to make change in our lives, and to create more balance amidst our whirlwinds.

I offer group art therapy workshops, as well as private art therapy sessions.

GROUP WORKSHOP - ART THERAPY FOR MOMS

$35/person for each 2-hour workshop
Tuesday’s (ongoing): 6:30pm-8:30pm

This ongoing weekly drop-in is designed for moms with creative/arts backgrounds – but who either aren’t finding the time to actively create on their own, or are just wanting to come be with a group of other moms creating together!

This group is just for moms – no kids. I do understand that this will be challenging for some (re: child care), but it feels important. This is for you, not for your kid – and if your kid is there we all know what will happen.

Being a mom can be lonely, and hard. The idea with this group is to create a space that supports you – and gives you a place to play, create, share, collaborate.

All materials are included. No experience with art materials is required!
