Art Journaling Series for Youth

This group is for TVCC youth and their siblings (12 yrs +) of all abilities who reside within Middlesex, Elgin, Oxford, Huron, Perth, Grey, and Bruce counties.

What to Expect

TVCC youth clients (12+ yrs) with disabilities and their siblings are invited to this unique program designed to inspire creative exploration and foster self-expression through the creation of their very own art journal. Participants are welcome to have a support person present to assist them with accommodations.

In this 8-week series, participants will delve into the world of art journalling - a dynamic and adaptable medium that transcends traditional artistic boundaries. Art journalling provides a safe and adaptable method for youth to explore and process their thoughts, emotions, and memories through the powerful language of creative expression.

Participants will be provided with a journal and all materials.

There are 2 options to join: in person at TVCC or virtually on Teams.

  • Interact with other TVCC clients like them
  • Participate in self-expression activities to develop self-awareness
  • Learn different journalling techniques, including creative writing and visual arts

  • TVCC client(ages 12+) living in Middlesex, Elgin, Oxford, Huron, Perth, Grey, and Bruce counties
  • Able to participate in a group and engage in artistic expression with or without accommodations.
  • If joining virtually, able and willing to participate in a virtual group using camera and microphone and/or chat
