Let’s Art About It

Monday: FREE live, interactive therapeutic art workshop for teenage boys!

We are so excited to introduce Luis Cano, MA, LPC, ATR- who will be leading a FREE live, interactive therapeutic art workshop for teenage boys THIS MONDAY at 6pm EST! At a time when we often have no choice but to be alone with ourselves, this workshop will provide a tool to (1) Gain a better understanding of one’s self and continue self-exploration (2) Move out of ego-centric self talk (3) Be mindful of self, others, and the world around you. (4) Manage your darkness so it can walk with you instead of walking you. Email us at info@letsartaboutit.com to receive a Zoom link for this workshop! Teens only. No supplies or art experience needed- just a light source and scavenger hunt during the workshop.

Luis Cano, MA, LPC, ATR, is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Art Therapist who holds a Masters of Art in Art Therapy from the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago Illinois.
