Expressive Arts Florida creative partners bring a powerful workshop to Hollyhock, Canada’s lifelong learning center.
“I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the Expressive Art program at Hollyhock in spring of 2017! It was wonderful to learn, explore and be open to new ways of creative expression in a very safe and beautiful environment. Kathleen and Tamara were wonderful facilitators, supporting and holding space for each of our individual journeys. This workshop ended up “jumpstarting” me into an exciting new direction for my own life, for which I am truly grateful!”

Immerse yourself in multi-modal Expressive Arts Process, including visual art, sound, music, movement, drama, writing, and guided meditation. In a supportive retreat atmosphere, follow the thread of your own creative process and imagery through a series of guided arts experiences as portals to self-discovery. Set your intention at the beginning of the retreat, and utilize the support of the group and instructors to assist you. Engage in a variety of arts experiences, and capture it all in one visual art piece that you complete over the whole four days.
Hollyhock is a not-for-profit educational institute dedicated to lifelong learning and cultural transformation, through courses, conference and community.
Whether you are brand new to this field, returning for renewal, or seeking to begin a training program, you will find something of deep meaning and inspiration. No experience in the arts is necessary.
“Over the past 7 years I have had the privilege to study, practice and grow through and with the facilitation of Kathleen Horne and her two creative partners. As teacher and facilitator, I find Kathleen’s gentle, knowledgeable and authentic way consistently creates and hold the space needed to embody and deepen the connection to my creativity and to others. An opening to explore, heal, and yes, challenge, change and grow who I am and how I can show up as my best self in the world”. Julia Alexander, Expressive Arts Florida Institute Graduate
By providing grounded experiences in visual arts, writing, guided meditation and movement, Kathleen, Tamara and Victoria help others discover and befriend their authentic self in ways that are deep and gentle. I have known the Expressive Arts Florida Institute faculty for many years as three of the foremost thinkers and teachers in the field of Expressive Arts. They have developed an engaging model of experiential learning that enables students to grow as individuals and to imagine new ways to serve their communities by accessing the creative process. -Pat B.

Kathleen and Tamara, our wonderful facilitators/teachers/guides, created a welcoming, safe, and inclusive atmosphere for this amazing workshop. I quickly shed any reservations I had about participating in the various forms of creative, expressive activities that enriched our time as a group. The moments we shared in their presence provided opportunities for learning, creating, and reflecting that I found to be transformational. This program surpassed my expectations and I feel so fortunate to have been a participant. Carolyn S., 2017 Hollyhock participant
