Halloween Creativity with Counselling Art Therapy Students

 Whiskers twitched and cat eyes glowed with excitement as costumed children – angels, superheros, and animals – celebrated the 3rd Annual Vancouver Halloween Expo.

This four day event is a fantasy festival of arts, cosplay, comics, anime, films and games, including performing arts exhibits and performances, concluding with a grand Halloween parade. This event, diverging from horror and gore, embraces people of all ages with fun and safe Halloween activities.

Breigha Gillespie, Brynne Wambold, Elizabeth Ramsey, Hannah Adam, Lutetia Wallis-Mayer, and Morgan Coulson, students in Adler University’s Master of Counselling Psychology- Art Therapy program, warmly welcomed little ones and their families into a creative space where imaginations were inspired and playful experimentation with art was encouraged. Those of all ages (re)discovered the simple joy of exploring creativity in a safe environment inspired by the students’ radical hospitality.



Ghoulish yet fun and imaginative artistic activities were designed to appeal to people of all ages: face painting, crayon melting, colouring, mask making, and bowls of glowing oozy goo. The welcoming warmth of the students and the creative activities left attendees with huge smiles and a new perspective on Halloween spirit.
