NEW MONTHLY CREATIVE ARTS CIRCLE
This Month's Theme: Body As Refuge
Many of us are faced with a multitude of emotions when our bodies struggle to cope with cancer and the short- or long-term effects of surgery and treatment. While gathered around the art studio table, we will use any medium of our choice, such as painting, drawing, collaging or sculpting, to explore an aspect of our bodies in which we find resource and strength. The intention is for the creative process to empower each of us to gain a sense of hope and tenacity with our bodies as they are. No artistic experience is required.
