Art Alley Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that is based on the concept that the creative process involved in the making of art is an alley to healing and life enhancement and that the over-worked and overwhelmed adult population will benefit from this art-based therapy program. I refer to this population as the “worried well.”  Art Alley is also designed to include working with adolescent and children clientele but will keep a sacred time and space for adults to rejuvenate with each other (or individually) as adults often give too much of themselves without rejuvenating and remember, if you aren’t breathing you are no good to anyone else. Art Alley is a safe, non-threatening, and healing space where an individual can go to de-stress and rejuvenate through the creative arts process. With hectic, fast paced, modern lives, people forget to take the time to stop and do something positive for themselves and thus stress-related illnesses have become a leading health problem and causes physical and psychological reactions with negative consequences. It has been estimated, that 75-90 percent of all visits to primary care physicians are associated with unresolved stress related issues. The best thing a person can do for themselves is to first acknowledge they are under stress; but more importantly is committing to engage in activities that will reduce stress and Art Alley is designed for this purpose, providing an art as therapy studio space.If you would like to come and experience the wonders of Art Alley, there are a few ways, one is to come to an Open Studio day, times and dates to be announced.  The other is by appointment.  Please email me at and let’s set up a time and date.  Open Studio is now functioning under more direction, with a specific art experiential being offered, although there is always tons of room for individual exploration.  Other specialty workshops will also be offered; days and time to be determined (the price for this varies upon project). A $20.00 to $50.00 fee will be charged per Open Studio session (specialty workshops vary in pricing), although there is a sliding scale option, so do not let fees stop you from coming.  An individual will need to pay something as research shows if a person has to pay for a program they tend to be more invested and gain more benefits.  New payment options and No Show policy is in the works, so stay tuned. If an individual/group/couple wish to receive private therapy this may also be arranged, prices will very depending on the type of therapy being requested.  Individual therapy session will be $120.00 an hour, couples/family therapy $150.00 an hour, and group prices to be determined, but again all fees will be on a sliding scale consideration with a set minimum. Insurance overall is not accepted, although other arrangements can be made if insurance is the desired way to pay. Come experience the healing Art Alley Inc. has to offer as it may just change your life!!Lisa C.
