TATI Online Art Hive - Registration
Sessions via Zoom on Wednesdays and Sundays
May 26 to July 18, 2021
Facilitated by art therapy students at the Toronto Art Therapy Institute (TATI), who are supervised by registered Canadian art therapists and psychotherapists.
An Art Hive, or community art studio, is a free space that welcomes everyone to take part in self-directed art making, in community with others. Facilitators are available to offer suggestions for art-making if needed. Participants are also invited to share art-making related skills in some sessions. Participants may share images of their artwork on the TATI Online Art Hive's Instagram account @TATIonlinearthive by emailing images to
The Art Hive does not provide psychotherapy. The group is not intended for in depth processing of artwork, meanings, or emotions. However, facilitators are available for individual support in a breakout room if needed, and can also offer resources for counselling and mental health services.
We can accommodate 15 participants in each session, please note that this will be done on a first come first serve basis.
