THE REVIVAL PROJECT ART AS HEALING TEAM
THERAPEUTIC ART + MOVEMENT + ENERGY SESSIONS
As a collective of artists and healing practitioners we are striving to bring art to the community in a more accessible way. Through The Revival Project by Violet Hive Art Collective we believe that everyone is creative and therefor an artist. Yhis team has specifically been cultivated by Amy (Violet Hive’s Founder to bring a higher level Art Experience for those ready to dig deeper, explore consciousness and art from a spiritual perspective while building community. The act of expressing one’s self through art and movement allows us to have more access to our right brain and see events, consider the world for alternate perspectives, and grow. Art allows us the opportunity to create openings and an allowance for an infinite amount of possibilities to be true. Learn more about our artists and their talents and offerings below.

As a healing practitioner, I merge decades of social work practice with a life time of jewelry design experience, to provide havens for women to creatively explore their struggles as they experience life’s journey. I believe everyone can tap into their creative side and that although the healing path may cause multi-dimensional upheaval, when artistic expression accompanies that path, there can be an inexplicable sense of flow. Further, I perceive jewelry making as a healing art form, as it gifts us the ability to literally adorn ourselves in our courage and strength. These sessions consist of discussion and self-reflection that celebrate us as individuals, participants often walk away feeling more connected to themselves and the collective. Their energy emanating from the gemstone pieces they’ve created, as well as the transformative energy revealed within their spirit.

Mobile Programming + The Revival Project
I believe wholeheartedly in the cathartic process of finding oneself through the journey of Art Therapy. Whether one chooses to define themself as 'creative' or not, I believe that each and every one of us is the embodiment of creativity in some form. You deserve all that this universe has to offer - starting with yourself.
I use a person-centered, art-in-therapy, along with a Jungian approach, allowing the client to determine the entirety of our sessions together. Even the smallest, most minute realizations all inevitably lead to growth. It is a culmination of establishing a comfortable, safe, sacred space and building a helping relationship; guided by the light of the individual seeking treatment. Art is introduced in our sessions together when words are not enough, and the feelings and acknowledgement of the need for expressivity comes to a point where this is discovered.
Art Therapy fosters and provides an outlet for self-exploration, awareness, and a deeper understanding of the heart that beats inside of us all. I have seen firsthand that one becomes stronger for understanding that in the midst of the creative process your breakdowns become breakthroughs. I have gained tools to encourage and provide a means of communication, understanding and expression in people of all ages who have trouble doing so on their own.
