Happy 2019 all! I have graduated and now I am a art therapist. This has been a dream of mine for at least 15 years. But I had many things happen in the becoming– lived in Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba… had cancer, recovered, took art courses, was a substitute and a term teacher, taught art and wellness classes, did practicum experience, and now finally…became an art therapist!!! Well, that is the compressed version. You will have to stay tuned for more about me and the new projects.

First is that I have a great creative space at 703 Park Ave, in Beausejour MB. I see children and adults that need private art therapy and counselling. I also offer recreational classes there as well.

Speaking of classes…

Children art classes begin in Beausejour at Joyezart Studio on Thursday January 24. 5:00-6:30 for grades 2-4, and 7:00 to 8:30 for grades 4-8. cost is $90 for 8 weeks. Registration and payment is through Brokenhead Recreation.

Mondays, I am going to be in Pine Falls, Manitoba at Wings of Power. I will be offering art therapy and counselling on a sliding scale. I want to help people who face challenges, and art gives voice to struggles and renews spirits. If you know someone who might benefit, drop by the center or send me a message.

I am looking forward to this year. I am looking forward to seeing what art therapy can do. Let’s be well and let’s make art. Joye
