About Me

Dorine Perach has worked in the U.S. and Israel for the past 23 years as an art therapist, art educator and artist. She uses an open approach to art, focusing on the process of creating art, rather than the product. Most classes are mixed-media, enabling students to experience painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, collage, papier mache', textiles and more.

In all the groups offered, art therapy techniques art utilized. Participants experience art-making to music, guided imagery and relaxation exercises. As students' learn to reflect on their images, they will find that the unexpected often leads one toward insight, learning and growth... and their unique art creations.
