In stressful times art, supporting community and creativity can become our safe shelter.
Every Tuesday afternoon we meet in the yard or in one of the rooms in Refugio to create together an art oasis when anybody can express freely through art.
This space and time is about the process of inner inquiry and uncensored expression, not about perfection, technique. We apply principles of art therapy and want to invite anybody who may need some moments of peace.
We provide art materials and peaceful and accepting atmosphere. You can just come and spend time painting, drawing, knitting, doing embroidery, sculptures, collage. Or just do nothing. Just be among us.
It is not about final products. It is about finding space and time to stay focused, connect with yourself and others, find joy in acts of creation, and support others with your acceptance and presence.
IF we are not in the yard, take the elevator to the 5th floor of Refugio and you will find us behind the orange doors.
We also welcome volunteers to help with babysitting and taking care of the space.
