Nonprofit to Sponsor Free Programs for Trauma Survivors

Are you…

  • Exhausted by the constant demand to take care of others?Β Β 
  • Always feeling pressure to produce, perform, and succeed?
  • Too overwhelmed to take care of yourself?
  • Disconnected or shut down from your creative self?

Come and give yourself the opportunity to rediscover your creative self alongside other women without pressure to perform, produce or succeed at Process Painting Women’s Groups led by Elissa Arbeitman, MA, ATR-BC and hosted by the nonprofit organization Because She Is, based in South Amboy. Sessions will be held at Wild and Free Painting, 660 Tennent Rd., Suite 106 in Manalapan on Wednesday, Nov. 20 from 6 to 8 pm.

Wild and Free Painting is an indulgent and nourishing Process Painting Art Studio for self-care, personal growth and exploration where we release stress, quiet our minds and reconnect to our true selves. We focus on the act of painting itself and your experience while painting, rather than the final art product. We celebrate your creativity in all of its authentic form and return to the idea that creative expression can serve as a tool to heal, connect, uncover, reclaim and discover. Experiencing this process helps women feel a deeper connection within themselves and, in turn, feel more satisfied and connected in all of their relationships.

No prior art experience is necessary to enjoy the benefits of this process. All materials and tools will always be provided. Sessions are two hours each, and attendance is free for trauma survivors through Because She Is. Space is limited to eight participants, and reservations must be made in advance. For information and to hold your space, visit BecauseSheIs.orgΒ or call 732-962-3115.
