About this event: Come join the fun at O’Flynn’s Art Gallery & Craft Shoppe in Cedar Springs for a Friday night stained glass class.

There is a positive connection between art and mental health. It is used to treat anxiety, depression, and PTSD. It can be great as a simple stress reliever as well. We believe in the power of the arts to connect and to heal – physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally! Join us in this paint therapy class as we use descriptive words to inspire creativity, release emotions, and engage in a meditative state and environment. Anyone can participate. No experience necessary. This is not a structured, instructional class. It is a personal journey and therapy for the mind, body, and soul! This class is about getting in touch with your emotions and releasing them in a healthy and creative way, no matter where you are on your journey. We’ll choose one Inspirational word at random; for example, Partnership, The Self, Strength, Growth, etc., and paint what that word inspires in us. It will be a great experience for young and old alike to connect and heal through this painting process! The Teen Paint Therapy is for kids aged 13 to 18 only.
