Led by a certified art therapist each this workshop series offers survivors of sexual abuse a safe and creative forum to express their experiences, emotions, and trauma. This program culminates in weekend retreat for all workshop participants. Survivors of any type of sexual abuse, trauma, assault, incest, rape, etc. and survivors of all genders are welcome in this program. Art Therapy provides survivors of sexual assuatl with a safe and creative forum to express their experiences, emotions, and trauma.

Based on the Open Studio Project, founded in Chicago, participants will explore various art mediums individually and through a collective group experience. Participants will learn about intention, art-making and witness writing. This is an opportunity for previous participants to continue their self-exploration or for new participants to try out this unique form of therapy.

In June 2018 Art Access hosted a curated gallery exhibit filled exclusively with art created by survivors and secondary survivors of sexual assault and abuse. This show debuted on June 15, 2018.
