Lower Trent Conservation


ECO-Expressive Arts workshop @ Proctor Park                                                                   Saturday, April 2nd: 10 am – 12 pm

Come explore the natural world and travel into the inner world of imagination and creativity
in and with nature. No art experience is required. Participants will be invited to find a special
nook--a tree, or rock-- where they will spend time deeply exploring and creating in various
ways.  Using materials they find around them they can make an image or assemblage or
mask, followed by journaling or writing a poem or a song.  It will be spontaneous and playful.
 Bring a journal or notebook, pen/pencil and if you wish, mark-making tools (such as markers), a camera to take a picture of your creation, and a seat. This event combines
Ecotherapy and Expressive Arts Therapy (ExAT) to promote growth and healing. 

Our guest host is Luci Dilkus (MFA), a student of the ExAT programme at the
CREATE Institute under supervision of a registered psychotherapist, and ExAT
Outdoor Environment Facilitator programme at the Canadian International Institute
of Art Therapy.
