it. In the past we were able to have a free workshop.
The clients really enjoy mixed media projects so we could do that. But we
are happy to try anything. Please bear in mind we will need more time to
complete the steps so a painting with fewer steps would work better for us.

3. Workshop / Atelier



Arteast Grow with Art presents/ Arteast l’Art en herbe présente
Love Yourself Workshop with Suzanne Valois

Embrace the face that greets you in the mirror each morning and dispel your self-critic through positive reinforcements while drawing it out! This workshop was developed to improve observational skills but perhaps more importantly to become mindful of the messages that we often feed ourselves about ourselves. Draw your own self portrait (with a lot of guidelines to help you get there) while enjoying soothing positive, meditative affirmations. See the difference that it makes in the lines and expression of your face which is indeed mirrored in your soul. No experience is necessary – just an open mind!

Saturday, October 20, 1:30 – 5:30 a.m.
Dance Studio, Shenkman Arts Centre, Orleans
$50/members; $60/non-members (All materials are included)

Suzanne Valois is a certified Expressive Arts practitioner, teacher, artist and founder of the Art of Being Human, who has been committed to helping individuals uncover and value their authentic voice through Creative Expression, for personal and global wellbeing. Suzanne currently works with the City of Ottawa, the University of Ottawa, and the Ottawa School of Art, offering workshops on Creative Expression for groups and individuals, creating and promoting programs using VTS (Visual Thinking Strategies) and Art for Health.


Chaque matin, embrasse le visage qui te salue dans le miroir et dissipe ton autocritique par un renforcement positif pendant que tu le dessines. Cet atelier a été développé pour améliorer des habiletés mais surtout pour devenir attentif aux messages qui souvent nous nourrissent nous-mêmes à notre sujet. Dessine ton portrait (avec plusieurs points de repères pour t’aider) jusqu’à un apaisement positif, méditatif. Regarde la différence que font les lignes et expressions de ton visage qui est le reflet de ton âme.

Samedi, 20 octobre : 13h30 – 17h 30
Dance Studio, Centre des arts Shenkman
$50/membre $60/non-membre
