    These workshops are group processes that include process art making followed 
    by stream of consciousness writing -- not exactly therapy, but very therapeutic. This organization works with disadvantaged populations of adults and teens (homeless, domestic violence, drug-free teens, special kids, etc), and adults and kids who are career changing, wanting to bring art back into their lives, etc.
