A companion to the exhibit Living Proof: Visualization of Hope on display from Sept 9 - Dec. 31, this expressive painting art therapy session will provide participants with a safe place to express feelings and reduce stress in a supportive environment where those affected by cancer or any illness can share with others who are going through similar experiences. A credentialed art therapist will lead participants through mindfulness and art making activities. The session will focus on the process of making art, developing tools for stress reduction, expressing oneself and connecting with others, rather than the finished piece of art. No creative or artistic experience is required to benefit from the art therapy session. Funding for this session has been provided by the Iowa Arts Council and Living Proof Exhibit. Due to limited space and high demand, pre-registration is required. Please email Associate Curator Kate Kunau at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, November 10 to reserve your spot.
