Inspired by "teen wisdom" and powerful therapeutic art masks created by

Ann's students at Pine River Institute, a residential treatment program for youth  struggling with addictive behaviour and other serious life challenges, the Mask Project offers creative art clinics that validate the human experience.


Students have given permission for her to share their artwork with others as a creative catalyst for artmaking. She invites youth, parents, teachers, peer support workers, health care workers, police, first responders and social service providers to self-reflect and express themselves through art. Art exhibitions are organized to showcase this important emotional work, bringing together and celebrating the courage to share and to learn more about psycho education. 

Workshops and presentations have been facilitated with the following groups;

  • Pine River Institute Student and Parent Art Therapy Groups

  • Home Horizon / Transitional housing for homeless youth / Collingwood

  • Mental Health and Addictions Consumer Survivor Project for Simcoe County 

  • Peel Regional Police Organizational Wellness / First Responders Reduce the Stigma of Mental Health in the Workplace
