Creativity – Community – Connection
creativearts

Fit To Recover Creative Arts groups provides members with opportunities for the exploration of creativity, self-expression and community connection through music, dance, writing, spoken word and art. No previous experience needed! Our mission is to provide a safe space for those in recovery as they continue to build upon new healthy relationships with self and others.Creative expression has the power to connect us.

“Being creative, in whatever form, is the proof that we can leave an imprint on our surroundings, that we can make a mark on time. When we make something, we make something different.”
Laurie Anderson

What we offer

Music

Our music groups meet Wednesdays for 1.5 hrs. Members collaborate on creating original music and lyrics that support the unique experiences of the members present.

Writing

Our Creative Arts program is now holding creative writing and poetry classes! Keep an eye on social media and our newsletter to know when the next creative writing group will be held.

Dance

Twice monthly on Fridays, FTR will hold Hip-Hop and Ballroom dance classes. Bring a friend, bring your dancing shoes, and bring a smile! See you there!

Art

For those who are artistically inclined, we are now holding watercolor painting, sketch art, pastel, and other forms of visual art. Supplies are provided by the Creative Arts instructors, so all you have to do is show up!

Creative Arts Individual Sessions

Community members have the opportunity to work 1:1 with either one of our Community Artists or with Tony in writing and recording original projects.
