    Cynthia Bydlinski Art + Health Facilitator
  • “Expressive Arts Florida Institute has established a powerful regional, national and international presence in the field of Expressive Arts Therapy. In their region, they provide substantial programming for the general public as well as professional training and networking opportunities. Nationally and internationally, their certificate training attracts people from far and wide to study at their center. Their leading edge use of technology enriches their programs and brings the expertise of leaders in the field of Expressive Arts directly to their students. I think of Expressive Art Florida Institute as one of the great disseminators of the Expressive Arts in the world today.”

     

    Deborah Koff-Chapin, founding director of The Center for Touch Drawing
  • Expressive Arts Florida Institute’s workshops are profound experiences for me – both for personal discovery and professional development.  Through art making, music, movement, writing, and play, I have learned useful techniques, awakened aspects of my inner self, and engaged in meaningful sharing with others.  With careful guidance and an inviting, safe atmosphere, EAFI creates a community of learners sensitive to the value of self-expression for healing and growth.”
