Since 2011, Nurturing from the HeART has offered Expressive Arts Therapy sessions that empower families in Kalamazoo Michigan and surrounding areas. Ninety percent of participants are low-income and underserved.

The expressive arts, as defined by the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association, combine the visual arts, movement, drama, music, writing and other creative processes to foster deep personal growth and community development.

IEATA encourages an evolving multi-modal approach within psychology, community arts and education. By integrating the arts processes and allowing one to flow into another, we gain access to our inner resources for healing, clarity, illumination and creativity.
