Open Studio: the therapeutic benefits of Mindful art making

Open Studio: the therapeutic benefits of Mindful art making, is a creative art therapy method, which combines the wisdom of mindfulness and creative process within the non- judgmental atmosphere of an artist’s studio. This combination generates spontaneous art making proven to be cathartic in the process of healing one’s self. Through both didactic presentation and experiential process, participants will gain an in-depth understanding of this often misunderstood therapeutic intervention.


To introduce the Mindful Open Studio method while reviewing the current uses and limitations of the common use of open studio in art therapy programs.

  2. Participant will learn the two core mindful art therapy directives; the writing of one’s intention, and the witnessing of one’s inner process, which facilitate the transformative aspect of the intervention.

  3. Participants will be able identify 3populations that can benefit from the Mindful Open Studio Method.
