A Message from Finding Our Voices Program Committee:
To those registered for the December Art Workshop or about to register
For this workshop, we will be having it on Sunday, December 15th, 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. because the canvases cannot be moved while they dry for 24 hours, from the acrylic paint pour. Also, participants will need to come pick up their artwork after the artwork workshop, we will schedule some times for participants to come by the office to get their artwork.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you in attending this art workshop, but we had to arrange for a time when the classroom would not be in use after us, so that the art will remain in tact. If you already registered, but cannot attend the art workshop on Sunday December 15th, please let us know and we will remove you from the list of registered attendees. If you are still able to attend the art workshop with the change, and have already registered – you don’t need to do anything.
We look forward to seeing you on that Sunday!

“Surrendering to the Creative Flow”
Acrylic Paint Pour
In this workshop we will be working with the concepts of “Letting Go of Control” and “Surrendering to Emotional Healing”. Our facilitator will be Wendy Carter, LCSW, who will take us through a painting technique called Fluid Art: Acrylic Paint Pouring. The process involves pouring a paint mixer directly onto canvases with no brushes involved. Each participant will be able to create two art pieces.
Wendy Carter, LCSW
Wendy has been a licensed clinical social worker since 2010 and received her masters degree from Newman University in Colorado Springs. Wendy’s personal difficulties taught her to be compassionate to herself and others. Her personal philosophy about emotional healing includes… asking questions instead of telling someone who they are is a tangible tool that leads to listening to our own truth instead of feeling okay only if someone else says we are. It can be difficult work, and the rewards are tremendous as we unwind the trauma to see the gifts hidden by the hurts. The journey from trauma to trust is a leap of faith. This is why I identify with the Phoenix as a way to come thru the ashes and move forward.
