Mother-Child Bonding Workshop

During a school break, we facilitated an art therapy workshop with some mother and child pairs focused on bonding. A strong trusting parent-child relationship is a key element in nurturing joyful and resilient families. Therapeutic art-making can be a great way to strengthen connection and communication within dyad pairs, and have some fun in the process too!

Conflict Resolution Workshop

Conflict Resolution Workshop

Conflict Resolution is a complex social skill that can feel abstract and hard to grasp, especially for persons with special needs. We worked with students at Metta School to strengthen their conflict resolution abilities. Through the concrete processes of art-making, we worked to foster greater understanding of social dynamics and conflict resolution strategies.

Transition Workshop for children with special needs

Transitions between phases of life can be difficult for everyone and especially so for persons with special needs. Through a series of 4 workshops, we supported students at Metta School in mentally and emotionally preparing to transition to life after graduating from school. Through art-making, we explored the sense of growing in school, connections made, emotional regulation, self-expression, dreams, and more.

Sustainable Weaving Workshop

Sustainable Weaving Workshop

Weaving can be easy, affordable, and sustainable too! During the Ground Zero Festival, we shared ways to create looms and weaving fabrics using upcycled materials and natural dyes. Participants of all ages engaged in the mindful process of making their own weaving patches which could be displayed as artwork, used as coasters, or turned into necklace pendants.

Upcycling Toys Workshop

Upcycling Toys Workshop

At the Ground Zero Festival, we also conducted workshops where children and parents created their own unique new toys by creatively transforming and combining old toys. From ambulance to food truck, single cars to a mega-vehicle, jewellery beads to paper weight, lego girls to door stopper, old toys are given a “new life” with inspiring ideas! We were amazed and inspired by all these imaginative creations by the children!

Natural Dye Painting Workshop

Natural Dye Painting Workshop

During the Ground Zero Festival, we showed how paints can be made of sustainable and earth-friendly materials too. We conducted veggie dye painting workshops where we guided participants to made their own veggie dyes and then use it to create an abstract painting. With this drawn-out process, each colour feels more magical and painting becomes an even more sensory experience.

Weaving Craft Workshop

Weaving Craft Workshop

While in Brisbane, Australia, for a creative arts therapy symposium, we conducted a weaving craft skill-sharing workshop for fellow art therapists and art-enthusiasts. We shared with participants ways to create looms and weaving fabric using common items as well as a variety of fun weaving techniques.

Stress-Relief Workshop

Stress-Relief Workshop

We facilitated a stress-relief art therapy workshop for employees at a company in Singapore. Various directives were introduced to increase their understanding of stress and explore ways to regulate emotions for a healthy work-life balance. For example, participants were guided to notice where in the body they experience “stress” by giving a form using different artistic mediums.

Programs

Our team works towards developing innovative and personalised programs to suit you, your community, or company. We also provide individual, group art therapy and art educational sessions.

 

Self-Care and Stress Management

Since stress is an ongoing aspect of life it is crucial to be actively responsive in finding ways to regulate ourselves to achieve good health and a balance in work-life. Learning to practice self-care in a way that works for you is a key part of managing the stresses of life. As such, we will use art-making to introduce self-care tools and explore ways to nurture inner peace and resilience.
