About

Art & Creativity for Healing, who we are and what we do: In 2015 Art & Creativity for Healing (ACFH) will celebrate 15 years of offering our unique workshops for children and adults suffering from abuse, illness, grief or stress; on-site and at hospitals and non-profit agencies. ACFH facilitates the creative process while encouraging emotional healing--and these two paths often intersect when words are not adequate, and pain is too deep. Our mix of artistic development and expression coupled with a creative healing model allows participants to learn a new way of communicating through color that encourages emotional breakthroughs and further enhances the therapy process. Unlike other art programs that employ a loose format of free expression, our curriculum contains strictly guided exercises (guided by our trained facilitators) and is designed to elicit emotional responses.

Since our inception, we have directly fostered transformational change in more than 50,000 children, women and families who have found our creative intervention a valuable tool to address the often unbearable pain in their lives. With over 35 non-profit program partners in Orange County we have created an effective methodology for reaching people in pain.
