Storytelling and the Narrative in Images

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 2, 2019, 4 PM – 7 PM
On Display: February 5 – 22, 2019
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Friday, 10 AM – 4 PM
Art Therapist Ruth Harpaz writes “both my own research and my Art Therapy practice have been enriched by the use of narrative and storytelling as therapy interventions.  The storytelling ability emanates from narrative knowledge.”  Arthur Frank also explains why storytelling and the narrative is so important in his Art Therapy sessions, “patients create empathic bonds between the wounded story teller and the wounded healer.”  Humans need empathy and understanding, that it why telling their story can be so liberating. Some of the earliest art was evidence of our ancestors telling stories.  Ancient communities and cultures were founded on stories and legends.  Storytelling can also be an interesting way to teach fundamental values, but it can also be a cunning way to scare the masses. Curated by Bethany Bennett, MFA

No artistic experience is necessary. You’ll be guided through the process by artist and expressive arts facilitator, Heather L. Pastor. Limited to 12 participants.

From Grief to Gratitude

December 7, 2019, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

ACA Main Campus, Helene B. Roberson Dance Studio, 1414 Art Center Avenue, New Smyrna Beach.
Join Body Dialogue creator, Janice Stieber Rous for a half day retreat as she shares the skills of breathing, visualization and gentle mindfulness movement practices to explore the ways we can feel our deep held emotions. From there we will journey towards the practice of gratitude and blessing. Generally, habitual breathing is not coordinated with the potential of our whole breathing system. In order to coordinate the breath, every individual must investigate their unique tension patterns. Whatever you are feeling these days, your body is recording those feelings in your muscle memory. Whether its joy or sadness, grief or delight, these feelings are living in your body and affecting your breathing, often resulting in a feeling of tightness and constriction. These breathing patterns affect your nervous system, your outlook on life, and your mental clarity. Join us if you wish to have more control over your moods, your reactions, your state of mind, and your well-being. $50 / ACA members $40. Limited to 15 participants. Register to secure your spot.

Added benefits can include self-growth, discovery, and joy through visual storytelling in a supportive group environment. Limited to 12 participants. RSVP required. Free, and open to everyone!
