Hi, I’m Samantha!
I’m a Therapeutic Arts Facilitator and nature lover who loves to help people process difficult emotions through guided art-making and writing!
After studying psychology in 2011, I supported survivors of trauma within various crisis centers. I witnessed that art-making was therapeutic to both survivors and to myself and found a lot of neuroscience to back it up. In 2018, I began creating regularly & Samantha Lesan Art was born.
Possessing a passion for heart healing, I host thoughtful, therapeutic arts classes in my community that build resilience and allow processing of emotions for further healing in a supportive, respectful environment. Activities include a variety of mindfulness, painting, creative writing, collage and more.
And inside the online 8-week Program, I’ll show you how you too can develop artful skills to process trauma, grief and difficult emotions self-compassionately.
