Art & Healing Cohort 6-Week Program

Our goal is to help black women increase self-awareness and promote self-care thru art expression. This will help to build healthy mental attitudes, strengthen family connections and increase productivity in the community. Through Art & Soul’s, Art & Healing Cohort we will use art and technology to explore and research heritage and cultural ancestry using DNA testing. This will give African American mothers insight as to their origin to discover who they are and how to reconnect with their families. Our intervention methods and creative exercises will help support the Black Child Legacy Campaign, by helping women identify their hidden talents and gifts through ancestral roots. It will restore a sense of identity and well-being and create a new pattern of self-love. When women love themselves they can then love their children. These prevention and intervention efforts will reduce disproportionate African American child deaths due to abuse and neglect and create a new legacy.




THE WORK

Art & Soul’s six (6) week Art & Healing Creative Expression Program is a commitment to you. We give you the freedom to express your inner thoughts feelings and emotions without judgment, to play have fun and experience your inner child. We offer unique weekly workshops instructed by local talented facilitators operating in their gifts.

Weekly small intimate group circles will be the canvas for the heART of connection. Through self- reflections, sharing and peer evaluations, this mindful process will help you return to a state of presence. Reconnecting you with your heart, mind, body, and soul, opens you up to recognize your inner essence, reclaim self-love, and realign to your purpose in life.

Mental health is an essential part of our wellbeing. Our work together will be transformative as we take the steps to build a healthy mental attitude while developing your gifts, talents, and abilities.

TOPICS We will work through some of the most pressing topics we face individually, socially, economically, culturally and mentally! These topics will be explored in-depth by using the Art & healing creative expression process.
