Expression Through Art (6-Part Series)

Thursday, January 20, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 2:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until Thursday, March 31, 2022

Members & guests–$15 Registration for this event is now closed as final orders have been placed for art kits. The day before each meeting, a confirmation email with Zoom details will be sent to all registered attendees.

Sometimes words just aren’t enough to express what’s inside. This series lets your mind wander and relax, escape the day-to-day, and get lost in the creative process. Absolutely no artistic skills required!

Every other week, certified healing art facilitator, Lisa Swaiman, will lead our group through fun and interesting art and reflection exercises. While listening to music from the soundtrack of our youth, we will play with paint, markers, crayons, sketch pads — all in a judgement-free environment. Accommodations will be made for participants who have memory loss or other cognitive impairment.
