Rockland — The nonprofit Art Loft, located downtown at 385 Main Street, Suite 9 (lobby level of the Thorndike Building), will host Creativity and the Self, a workshop with Barbara Davis, Sunday, Jan. 21, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Whether one consciously chooses to make New Year’s resolutions or not, most spend a few moments reviewing the past year and thinking about hopes for the next this time of year. This workshop is designed to enhance that process and cultivate creativity by using the art-making process to communicate hopes, goals and losses.

No art experience is required; this is for anyone who wants to spend a few hours in a supportive environment exploring his or her creativity. This is not an art instruction class, but rather an expressive arts workshop where participants are guided to express themselves through their creative processes.

Davis integrates her knowledge about art making and psychological healing to guide participants to explore and express their inner selves. She has been guiding groups and individuals towards self-acceptance and healing for more than 25 years. Davis has an MFA and MSW from Rutgers University; and a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design.  She also holds a post-graduate certificate in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. She has a psychotherapy practice at Camden Whole Health.

Fee for the workshop is $20. To register or for more information, visit; email; or call 200-7915.
