Artmaking is innately therapeutic and can improve general wellbeing. We invite adults 16+ to join us and explore the creative process through experimentation and play.
Art Hive is free; materials are provided and no prior art experience is necessary. If you are looking for guidance, art therapist/facilitator Harper Johnston offers weekly projects and visits to our current exhibitions.
Harper Johnston, BA, B.Ed, MFA, DTATI has over thirty years of experience working as an arts educator with adults, adolescents and children. She is a professional art therapist, a play therapy intern and is currently completing the requisite hours to become a Registered Psychotherapist. Harper also worked in film for many years as a stills photographer and camera assistant. Her film work, primarily with the C.B.C. and the National Film Board, took her all over the world. Harper has received numerous arts council grants and her photography has been shown across the country. She also has work in the Canada Council’s Art Bank permanent collection. Harper is friendly and enthusiastic and is always happy when called upon to share her creative ideas and studio knowledge.
