Paint Your Inner Voice: Educator & Early Years Professional Appreciation!
London, ON, Canada
Facilitated By: Hailey Tallman MA Art Therapy
As Early Years Professionals, we give a lot of ourselves to encourage learning and growth in others, to empower them to thrive in this world… But we can’t pour from an empty cup! This Early Childhood Educator and Early Years Professional Appreciation Day we invite you to participate in this special opportunity designed to help fill your cup!
The past 20 months have presented challenges to our field many of us could have never imagined. We have adapted, pushed on, pivoted, and advocated for safety, for our profession, and most of all, for the well-being of the families and children in our care. On ECE and Early Years Professional Appreciation Day 2021, let’s care for each other and ourselves!
The purpose of Paint Your Inner Voice is to reconnect to our inner voice, rebuild self-trust, rediscover what we really want and need, and remember the power of community.
Paint Your Inner Voice is like a paint night for the soul – or like mindfulness with paint: Participants stay with the process listening to your inner voice as it instructs you, moment by moment, which images and colours it wants to see revealed. Participants will then take part in reflective writing to explore the meaning found in their painting.
Finally, in safe, small, nonjudgmental breakout rooms participants will share what their inner voice revealed to them, and witness the other group members doing the same.
Prepare to be touched, reconnected, inspired, and enriched by this experience!
Her Master’s in Art Therapy allowed her to combine and put her love of art and psychology into action.
Hailey started her art therapy career working with children in Guatemala before opening her first private practice in London, Ontario where she worked primarily with children survivors of domestic violence.
After coming close to experiencing burning-out, Hailey decided to switch gears and start serving other women who care and give deeply of themselves. She does this through 1:1 therapeutic art sessions, creativity coaching, and through her Paint Your Inner Voice groups.
Hailey’s main goal is to remind women of their purpose and value through the power of the arts and community.
