Art Making with Meaning

Join a group of students for the winter 2018 semester on a journey of self-discovery through art. This program blends arts with coaching for the purpose of self-care in a fun, nonjudgmental environment. This opportunity is open to all Trent students and there is no previous art experience required.

A College of various colourful art projects attendees will be working on, including a tree sculpture and a bug sculpture
