Henry Hedgepodge Art Academy

Henry Hedgepodge Academy of ART is an expressive arts school + creative therapies centre where the therapeutic process of art making is employed to enhance the psychological and social well-being of individuals of all ages and health conditions. It is at its heart, an adult and children’s safe space for self-expression through the mediums of visual art, writing, play, and drama, for healing, transformation, rejuvenation, self-discovery, creative learning and exploration.
