Healing Through Art

Creative Life Changes Through Artistic Expression

About this Group

Experiment with a variety of art techniques such as spontaneous drawing, expressive painting, collage, and multimedia to explore topics related to health and life changes. Exploring unfamiliar methods and materials can lead to the expression of personal metaphors for loss, bodily changes, new career choices, and re-evaluating relationships. Participants will be invited to discuss their artwork with the group and have the opportunity to hear about the meaning of others artwork. This group is for individuals who have or who have had cancer.
