Part A and Part B are necessary for Certification.

CEU’s are offered through Dominican University, San Rafael, CA. 2 Credits for Part A and 3 Credits for Part B. Courses in this program also go towards Awakening Arts Academy’s Transformative Arts Certification.  No artistic experience is required to become a Facilitator, just the willingness to build a more just and peaceful world through healing community heartbreak and creating a shared vision of success. 
Like the rest of the world, we are creating new ways of bringing our services to the public.  We are working in separate studios and sending art through the mail and email. We are inventing new forms for a new future. 
Even though I miss making art in person, working on the Restorative Justice Singing Tree on-line was still fun. It gave me hope, purpose and connection. I felt less bored and depressed.”

Thank you so much for this wonderful experience of creativity, play and legacy through the Singing Tree Project.  I look forward to the final display of our collective creation!”
