The CASSA Arts Workshop began its new season in September, 2011, under the direction of Ruth Stenstrom, ATR-BC with assistance by GWU Art Therapy Graduate Interns and artists Stewart Morgan and Stephanie Tyler. 
CASSA artists were offered opportunities to join painting/meditation and phototherapy groups, while  continuing  to work on sketchbooks, drawings, paintings, murals, digital photography, sculpture, mixed media projects, music composition, altered books and environmental art (pictured above right).
