Or, do you just want to spend the afternoon making art and getting to know and like yourself a little better with like minded people in a beautiful and inspirational space?
Art Therapy groups and workshops at the Melbourne Art Therapy Studio provide a safe space for you to explore themes that are important to you. You will have the opportunity to use a variety of art materials throughout the sessions to explore, play, discover and delight in the process.
