Creative Expression Lab
Grades: K-6th

In partnership with Marywood University Art Therapy Program

Creative Expression Lab is an inspiring space for K-6 artists to express creativity and imagination, and to explore social and emotional growth. The program will provide a space to express autonomy and independence and practice active decision-making.

Weekly themes will integrate social and emotional concepts such as empathy, respect, understanding one’s emotions, and developing skills for positive social interactions. Participating artists will benefit from the educational and cultural resources offered through the museum as well as the opportunity to focus on each artist’s personal creativity and self-expression. 

The Creative Expression Lab will be hosted by Dr. Ashley Hartman, Assistant Professor of Art Therapy at Marywood University, a board-credentialed art therapist (ATR-BC) and licensed professional counselor (LPC). Art therapists and students from Marywood University’s Art Therapy Program will participate in developing and co-facilitating the Creative Expression Lab Studio Sessions.  

Creative Expression Lab Saturday Studio Sessions 

Creative Expression Studio Sessions will take place Saturday afternoons at the Everhart Museum from 1:00 PM-3:00 PM.

The Everhart Museum will follow CDC Recommendations to protect students and staff. We will take the following precautions to prevent close contact:

1. Masks are required and must be worn at all times.

2. There will be a student drop-off and pick-up zone located in the back of the Museum building. At this time, parents and guardians will not be permitted to enter the building.

3. Students temperatures will be taken before they exit the vehicle. Any student with a temperature above 100.4 will not be allowed to attend class.

3. Our studio space will have a max capacity of students based on state guidelines. Students will receive a kit of materials that will not be shared. Once class is over, students will take home supplies used in the session.

4. All students will be seating at least 6 feet apart and class will follow strict social distancing guidelines.
