Narrative Art Therapy

This drop in group is designed as a creative outlet for people who have served and are serving in the US Armed Forces. These art sessions will offer participants a gentle opportunity to explore the “stuff” that is hard to talk about related to military service and post deployment life. These groups are free of charge, and no art background is necessary for participation.

With a partnership between InterUrban ArtHouse and Operation Art, these sessions will be co led by art therapist, Sherri Jacobs, MS, LMFT, MA, ATR, and artists, Ada Koch and Sydney Pener.

Externalizing the unspoken “stuff” in our heads though images, words, and even cartoons can be a powerful process to get ahold of the things/memories/experiences that often consume us. Join us for an evening of anthropomorphizing this “stuff” in an enjoyable and non-threatening way. No art experience necessary for participation!
