STARTS Friday, September 8th!
ADHD ART CLUB
Art-making has been vital to me during the process of getting evalutated for ADHD. In this class we will explore all things related to our journeys of getting to know our (or others’) neurodivergent minds including struggles, triumphs, + empowerment. All you need is a journal + color media of your choice. Journaling prompts + techniques will be shared. No art experience or formal evaluation necessary. Come as you are no matter where you are on the path!
NOTE: this is not a therapy class or an educational class on adhd – although it has the possibility of being therapeutic and I’m sure we will learn a lot from each other! You also don’t have to have a diagnosis of ADHD to join us. You are invited if you have friends, family members, students, or community members that are struggling or thriving as Neurodivergent folx and you are interested in being in a like-minded community.
COST: By Donation (students have been paying anywhere from $5 – $50 per class which comes out to $20-$200 for the whole course.) Please pay what matches your financial means and needs, even if you cannot afford to pay.
DATES: Fridays, September 8, 15, 22, 29. 5 – 7pm Pacific Time
Each class will be recorded and you will get a link to it so you can have it for future reference
