Traditional Artmaking Processes

2D and 3D Art Session

Participant work; April 2022; 2D and 3D Art with Olivia Garza


Olivia Garza, our Peer Support Specialist continues to facilitate the 2D and 3D Art Session, inviting peers to come and join in the creating fun! She enjoys to create sessions that all are welcome to attend, peers of all levels of artistic ability. Her session this week for instance, was a creative re-occuring session having to do with texture art and creative colors.


Pastels and Acrylics with Rebecca Haigh

Participant Work; April 2022; Pastels and Acrylics with Rebecca Haigh


In Rebecca's traditional instruction our peers are able to start and leave off where they need. Their skills improve each time with traditional drawing skills and composition skill needed to create a final design in Pastels and Acrylics.

The design and finished product of a work is important to Rebecca. She works with peers at all levels and will help the willing participant create a finished work that is ready to hang. Some of her peers are already professional artists, some are just beginning here at My Voice, and some are well one their way on their own path of art.
