About the event

Come join us for a day of self-discovery and communion through art and movement with artist, Susan Clinard and drama therapist, Alicia Stevens! For the first half of the day, we will use clay for exploration and expression through sculpting. For the second part of the day, our bodies will be the medium of exploration and expression through dramatic play. It will be fun, it will be silly, it will be messy, it will be irreverent, and it will be sacred. - West Rock Wellness

When pushing, lifting, and carving clay we use no words. Our tactile senses are awakened, and the heart is engaged. I have experienced thirty years of artmaking and teaching to a wide range of people in our communities and repeatedly I have witnessed the emergence of student’s unique expression and self-discovery. - Susan

Our bodies, like clay, are shaped by our lived experiences. Our communities, families, and childhood experiences influence how we think, feel, and relate to each other. Like working with clay, moving our bodies - imagining, dancing, playing, pretending, stretching, laughing, pausing, resting, and breathing, can awaken our senses. It can help us feel alive. As a body centered, movement based and trauma informed therapist, I know that engaging our bodies, and finding play is central to healing and transformation. - Alicia

Tickets are $150/person.
