CTS offers both weekly workshops and by-appointment groups. If a workshop is indicated as a zoom drop-in workshop, students can attend virtual workshops sessions weekly or on an as-needed basis without an appointment. If a group is indicated as a group in which a screening appointment is needed, an individual must schedule a screening prior to attending the group to determine if the group will be able to meet their needs. By-appointment groups require a weekly commitment.

  • Please see our workshop list to determine if any workshops would fit you. If a virtual Zoom workshop feels appropriate, feel free to connect via Zoom a few minutes prior to the start of the workshop; if you are experiencing suicidal ideation, please call CTS at 940-565-2741.
  • For those signed up for closed groups, you will be contacted by your group leader concerning scheduling.

Healing in Color: Art Workshop

Tuesdays (Weekly)
In-person
2:00PM-3:30PM

Healing In Color is a space for healing through expressive arts and creativity. In this group, it is important to focus on the process of creating, and not the product of what you create. Together, we will explore mindfulness, emotions, anxiety, stress, and negative thoughts in a relaxing and fun way. In this space, we will engage in artistic activities to reflect on our needs and experiences using colors and creativity from our minds, bodies, and spirits for the intention of healing.

Each week, we will engage in different expressive art activities using different mediums such as acrylic paint, markers, watercolors, magazines, oil pastels, and color pencils. You are not required to share your artwork but there is a space given at the end of the workshops to process the artwork, activity, and experience. Throughout the workshop, there will be soothing background music being played and instructions are given in the beginning and can be repeated throughout the workshop. If you are struggling with the activity, the host will assist you with the workshop to help you feel more comfortable or capable of engaging with the activity.

Start Date: May 21
End Date: August 6
