In this bi-weekly six session workshop facilitated by art therapist Em Jones, participants are invited to engage in the process of El Duende one-canvas painting.

Each week, group members will be guided to nonverbally explore their thoughts, feelings, and current experiences by developing one canvas painting over the six sessions. The El Duende method invites participants to explore the concepts of layering, rhythm and tension, sensory engagement, and visual interest, bringing forth emotional vibrancy and authenticity through cumulative process painting.

Over six weeks of writing and painting, this workshop aims to facilitate self-expression and the discharge of negative energy through artmaking, invite relaxation and flow, and encourage support in a creative and healing virtual group atmosphere.

Workshop Materials: Participants will be provided with one canvas and basic acrylic painting materials. Participants are also welcome to use any other painting materials they have available. Participants will also be given a small lined notebook for writing.

Week-by-Week Overview: Each workshop will be structured as follows:

  • Group feeling check-in;
  • Art making;
  • Reflective writing;
  • Group discussion; and
  • Closing breathwork.
