The Dancing Canvas is an expressive arts therapy studio offering individual and group sessions for healing, personal development and community building through the arts. Owner and Expressive Arts Therapist, Natalie S. Cruz shares her passion for creative expression with individuals of all ages and abilities with compassion, care and guidance.
Expressive Arts Therapy is an arts-based therapeutic approach. We draw, paint, sculpt, make music, dance, write and tell stories about our lives. Children, teens, adults and older adults can all benefit from creative renewal and imaginative exploration. Sometimes our artwork reflects our stress, fear, depression, relationship struggles and pain. And at other times, we take a break from our worries and rather focus on color, line, shape, rhythm, and movement. No previous art making experience is necessary. We all have creative potential!
