We still need sign ups for May and June!


Bremen Museum Art Therapy Workshops Need Sign Ups


Along with their exhibit of Maurice Sendak's illustrations for "Where the
Wild Things Are" and other art and writings of his, museum staff are hosting
6 Sunday family days, with hands on activities in the gallery for young
children inspired by the principles of Art Therapy (in collaboration with
the Georgia Art Therapy Association). Georgia Art Therapy Association will
be listed on all exhibit materials as a partnering organization. 

The dates for the family days are Sunday afternoons:


Jan 25 - Jenny Welty-Green, jweltygreen@xxxxxxxxx

Feb 15 - Susanne F. Fincher & Susan P. Johnson, sfincher@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

March 29 - Carolyn Treadon & Linda Jo Haythorn clb246624@xxxxxxxxx

April 26 - Gayle Torres  wheeliecelt@xxxxxxxxx

May 31 -

June 28 -


This is a golden opportunity to represent you and your art therapy practice,
as well as the profession of art therapy! Art therapists are invited to
share their business cards and other information with people attending the
exhibit. You can create your own workshop theme, ideally, but not
necessarily, related to Sendak's work in some way. Also, projects that help
parents and kids better communicate with and understand each other are
requested. Workshops are to be for 2 hours, and can be either drop-in, open
studio format or theme centered with participants required to begin at the
beginning of the workshop session. Young children (through 2nd grade) will
attend, and be accompanied by an adult. You can propose to present to older
children as well, but we have been asked to provide art therapists for sure
with the young children's art explorations in the gallery. Bremen will
provide money toward art materials. GATA also has its own materials. Seems
like this will be an ideal use for them.


Please get in touch with me with the dates you are available. You can
volunteer for more than one date, if you like. Specific workshop topics need
not be developed right away. Just let me know when you are available. The
exhibit opened November, 2014. Let's take advantage of this incredible
opportunity to let art therapy shine!
