Celebrating the Therapeutic
Power of the Creative Process

  • “I left my everyday self behind and was transported into a world of color, line, and texture.”

    A joyous relief for untapped artistic expression

  • “Coping with the mastectomy experience and finding an uplifting and therapeutic release in art”

    Celebrating the joys of self expression and healing

  • “Building hope: a group activity for expressing pent-up emotions and coping with illness”

    A relief from focusing on illness
