Community-Based Courses

Becoming Empowered with knowledge and skills to better protect ourselves both mentally and physically is a positive thing. At Norton Arts, we believing in educating others to better identify, avoid and manage difficult situations.


We presently have two community-based courses scheduled for your benefit:

Learn how to manage your personal space from social interactions to professional environments. 


From those awkward moments to the threat of physical assault, learning how to better manage our personal space has tremendous benefits. Not only does knowing how to manage our comfort zone provide greater confidence and peace of mind, but it also provides us with valuable life skills in understanding body language, and how to effectively communicate inclusive of de-escalation strategies.


This course will help you to feel more comfortable with space invaders (Not the game…lol). We delve into many areas from understanding your comfort zone to setting boundaries, effective verbal and nonverbal communication strategies, and more.
