Expressive Arts is not about making works of art, as much as it is about making art work for you.

About Us

Rachel Tanner and Wendy Newbery have extensive experience working in a range of social service settings. They use art and creativity as a focus – both personally and professionally. They provide unique and playful art-making experiences that focus on personal learning and growth in a safe and welcoming setting. All are welcome!

What We Do

We can provide one-on-one sessions, workshops (including custom workshops), sessions on special topics and our “Art Cart” (which comes to you).

Here’s what some of our participants have said about their Stepping Stones experience:

“Thank you for creating a welcoming space and warm invitation to self-exploration and personal discovery through the Expressive Arts!”


“This Expressive Arts group has been replenishing and challenging, and I look forward to it each week.”
