Healing Through Art
Members of the "Healing Through Art group" at the Center created this artwork. This group is currently facilitated by Esther Dreifuss-Kattan, PhD, ATR and provides opportunities for healing through self-expression giving voice to the losses, fears and offers an active approach to integrating the experience of the illness into the self. Making art can be a restorative process that assists in the cancer journey.
While some of the patients/artists have art training, many do not and it is not required for the group. Participants work in a wide variety of two- and three-dimensional media.
The images are a sampling of the work produced in the group over many years. The "Art Task" describes the assignment that was given to the group by the facilitator of the group, an art therapist. Please note the "patient/artist" is not identified. We have used a set of initials to identify the work so that viewers will know which pieces the same individuals created. > View The Art Gallery
