Art Meets Healing — A painting experience of personal expression

Join Fatema Siddiki as she guides us through self expression by painting our emotions. This is a workshop where you’ll get your hands dirty!

Fatema is an expressive, abstract artist who explores color and form to represent her emotional journey. Originally from the middle east, she traveled to the US to get an education at UCLA, with additional experience attending Yale’s summer program.

Fatema’s approach to artwork is purely about feeling. We invite you to bring your highest of highs and lowest of lows to your canvas in this hands-on painting workshop. Come meet other creatives and explore what it takes to throw yourself into your creations!

Materials will be provided.


Fatema Siddiki is a distinguished art coach whose artistic journey started back when she was at Yale, where she cultivated both skill and passion for the expressive world of creativity and later after graduating from UCLA, started her journey of creating and sharing art.

Her mission goes beyond the canvas ; it’s about facilitating healing through art. She guides every participant to paint what they feel, creating a unique pathway to tap into the depths of your own world.

Fatema’s inspiration stems from a personal journey of resilience. Diagnosed with lupus, she found solace and strength in creating Art. It became a beacon of light in the tunnel of challenges.

Embracing life with a renewed perspective, her purpose is to inspire others to see hope, to realize that challenges may come but they don’t define us; rather, they shape the unique narratives of our lives.
