Day Program

Maitri Multi-Media Day Program is designed to incorporate a variety of art forms, methods, and mediums to encourage increased communication, coping, and expression skills, to build independence and a sense of community through individualized and group creative projects within the program itself and within the community. 

MUSIC

Maitri Multi Media incorporates a variety of musical tools, including analog instruments such as drums and guitars, as well as digital music production techniques covering a wide variety of genres. Through utilization of these tools it is the intent of Maitri Multi-Media Day Program to give people an opportunity to enhance quality of life, as well as to develop better ways to channel emotions, anxiety, and stress, while also providing a creative outlet.

ART

Focusing on art in many forms as a means of expression, creative release, and a stress reducer,  Maitri Multi-Media provides participants with hands on experience with a variety of creative tools, both traditional and more modern, from painting, drawing, and photography, to photo manipulation, printing, and numerous other digital art mediums. 

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental and compassionate state of awareness over one’s physical, mental, and emotional experiences. Mindfulness combines three primary components: intention, attention, and attitude. In More Maitri’s mindfulness groups, participants learn to intentionally use attention (observing, witnessing, and noticing) to focus on the the present moment-to-moment experience and to cultivate an attitude of kindness and compassion towards oneself (and others). Some practices include guided: yoga, body scan, progressive muscle relaxation, hypnosis, visualization, positive affirmation, loving-kindness (Maitri), and many more!

 

Technology

Providing much of the backbone of the program, the use of a wide variety of technology and video will help to familiarize the participants with modern methods of film, music, and art production, as well as providing them with a chance to create individual and group projects that they can in turn share with the world, if they so desire.

Using video as a way of combining all of the other skills and facets of the program together, Maitri Multi-Media will focus on the many skills, techniques, and genres of filmmaking, while giving participants a chance to get  behind the scenes, while working on a variety of projects.
