About this event

Come try a NEW Pilot Workshop! In this interactive workshop each participant will be given 3 small canvases and paint. They will be prompted to essentially "paint their emotions". Canvas, paint, and paint brushes and other paint supplies will be provided. Participants are encouraged to wear something they are not afraid to get dirty. The workshop will begin with brief psychoeducation around CBT, but a majority of the session will be used to paint. Everyone will also get a chance to speak about their paintings in a group setting at the end. Each participant will take their paintings home. While painting, each participant will get a feel of what it is like to translate their emotions to art while embracing CBT methods. The combination or Art and CBT gives the artist the opportunity to turn inward and examine emotions, thought patterns, beliefs, etc.

About The Teacher:

Hi there, my name is Angela Gallo and I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW ) - however, my academic and professional journey has always been rooted in art. I actually started my journey as a fine arts major in college and loved every second of it, but knew I wanted more. So, I shifted gears and went on to receive my BA in Art Therapy. From there I completed my Masters in Social work at NYU and went on to start my career as a Licensed Master Social Worker. I have extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well as a background in trauma work, and I incorporates art into my work as often as I can. I currently work in a Private practice and I am the owner of the newly founded company, Art Talk LLC.
