Expressive & Creative Arts
The artistic workshops of Arts & Expression give full priority the creative emergence common to all human beings. We create a non-judgemental, welcoming and kind-spirited environment where everybody feels at ease to express himself freely.
We’re not here to teach participants the technicalities behind the production of works of art. Our work is all about expressive and creative arts. Thus, we accompany adults, adolescents and children in bringing forth their ideas, imagination and creativity. However, we do offer technical support on request.
By stimulating their imagination and their right analog brain, we invite participants to connect to their inner world. Thereafter, they enter a creative phase using artistic media, such as drawing, painting, 2D and 3D collage, clay modeling, mixed crafts, writing and creative movement.
We don’t judge the aesthetics of the work of art produced. Indeed, what truly matters in our approach are the expressive modalities that support individual and group creativity as well as the creative process.
