For patients, caregivers, families or anyone dealing with the trauma related to health, wellness, and healing - InterUrban ArtHouse will be offering a variety of art therapy meetups that will help you through your difficult time!
This workshop will offer participants an opportunity to explore their role as caregivers. Mosaic making can serve as a metaphor for “putting piece back together,” which is often the experience of people who spend time caring for their loved one. Participants will create 6x6 inch tiles with mosaic pieces. This session is for: people in cancer treatment, caregivers, family members, friends etc.
Although an underlying theme of these sessions is breast cancer, all are welcome regardless of the type of illness you or your loved one might be experiencing.
