Acokan (pronounced “ajougan”) means bridge, in the Anicinape (Algonquin) language. The course exists to accompany you gently in your creativity and inner discoveries.


On this path of pure creativity, Joan Wabanonik and Jocelyne Laroche also build bridges between Aboriginal philosophy and more recent techniques inspired by art therapy.

Do you need to be an artist yourself to start this path? No way ! Just the urge to summon your own creative power, reconnect with yourself and celebrate the world around you!
