Art Therapy Pet Celebration Workshops

Art Therapy Pet Celebration WorkshopsThe human animal bond is one of most special relationships we can experience. These Art Therapy Pet Celebration Workshops in NYC are being offered as a way to use the creative process of making art to celebrate that bond. If you have recently lost a pet, making art can help you to transcend your loss, transform the pain of grief, and move forward in your healing. Making art is stress and anxiety reducing and offers a way to process emotions that go beyond words. The creative process is intrinsically energizing and restorative.
