Art, Healing and Hope!
October 12, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC-6Free
Art, Healing and HOPE is an experiential based program, providing cancer patients and survivors an opportunity to process ongoing feelings and concerns in a facilitated, supportive and creative environment using expressive arts and healing practices. Art, Healing and HOPE will give cancer patients and survivors a voice, a visual identity and more cause for HOPE. Facilitator Sheri Gaynor, LCSW, Registered Expressive Arts therapist created this program speci cally for the Calaway•Young Cancer Center. It rst debuted in 2012.
Participants will be guided through a creative process using meditation, guided imagery, visual journaling and a wide variety of art-making tools. Using paint, markers, brushes of all kinds, and most importantly, your hands, voices, minds, spirits and bodies. No art experience is necessary and all will be welcomed, encouraged and supported.
Participants in this group will receive a great deal of support and insight into their own experience with cancer and, just as importantly, this group will provide participants an opportunity to give back, support, inspire and help one another.
From diagnosis and treatment, to continuing post-treatment, Art, Healing and HOPE offers an oasis of support, renewal and empowerment, providing participants a sense of community and understanding that they are not alone.
Sessions will meet at the Art Base in Basalt, Colorado and participation is free. Art, Healing and HOPE is proudly sponsored by the Calaway•Young Cancer Center,
the Art Base and Path nders.
Our gatherings will culminate in celebration, through an exhibit of work produced by participants at the Calaway•Young Cancer Center.
