Artistic creation can provide healing for people with a variety of personal and health-related concerns. Both engaging in the process of creation, and using completed artwork to communicate a variety of themes related to the healing process can be beneficial within a group environment. Groups will include a brief introduction of the process, creation of art images, and optional sharing of created images. No art experience necessary. This is not a series.
