Resilience: Art by Survivors of Sexual Assault

Open Studio & Art TherapyIMG 0459 1
for Survivors of Sexual Abuse

Art Access provides two 5-week art therapy workshops specifically for survivors of sexual abuse and assault. This program provides adult participants with an opportunity to express themselves and heal through art. 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 a 3-day 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.

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 will be holding a curated gallery exhibit filled exclusively with art created by survivors and secondary survivors of sexual assault and abuse. This show will debut on June 15, 2018, and run until July 13, 2018. Gallery Stroll & Artist Reception is set for Friday, June 15, 2018, from 6-9 pm. If you are interested in participating in the show please email Elise at or call her at 801-328-0703, option 4 and request more details and information regarding the submission process.
