Art Therapy and the Expressive Arts

As life can bring us a thousand joys, it can also bring us unpredictable challenges and occasionally life altering losses. Throughout her entire life, fine artist and art therapist Laurie Maves Guglielmi has both formally and informally utilized the creative process to not only find the health in herself, but has had extensive experience in facilitating this process for others.  Art and mark making helps one to find a voice and express thoughts, feelings and emotions, that words just simply cannot accommodate.  Laurie has over twenty years experience as a masters level art therapist and a lifetime experience as a creative and an artist.  Currently she works from her home studio as well as at the Art Factory 44, in northern Sarasota, Florida.  Art Factory 44 is a warehouse studio with 4 full time working artists, where Laurie offers large-scale free themed abstract expressive painting classes and private art therapy as well as abstract painting lessons/sessions. Laurie is also able to travel and provide expressive therapy individual or group services at private homes or alternative community settings.  To inquire or book, please fill out the contact form on this website.
