To be a Person is to have a story to tell. –Karen Blixen/Isak Dinesen (author of Out of Africa)
Culturally, we are immersed in stories daily (i.e. movies, songs, dance, art, television, music, etc). Individually, we have personal stories of celebrations, hardships, and occasional monotony. Stories contain hope and vulnerability; stories contain disappointments and grief. As stories are told, they connect us with others and bring meaning and a sense of order to life. No matter your age, gender, ethnicity or ability, your story matters at Art Stories Studio.
One effective way that stories (whether true or make-believe) can be communicated is through art therapy, a gentle and yet powerful therapeutic tool that brings about a deeper understanding of oneself. Art Therapy can prove particularly helpful for those who do not have the words to express thoughts and feelings verbally. Art Stories Studio is a place for everyone, even to simply heighten your sense of creativity, preserve memories of the past, or bring enrichment to your story today.
