Art4Healing Workshop: Painting with a Higher PurposeSpace is Limited. Registration Required. RSVP link: https://ci.ovationtix.com/35355/production/1049914?performanceId=11290362 Art4Healing® workshops are 2-hour experiences that teach you how to express your feelings with color using the Art4Healing® method developed by Art & Creativity, Inc. An Art4Healing® workshop allows participants to get in touch with inner feelings that many times words cannot express. Our certified facilitator will lead participants through a series of prompts as they respond by painting abstractly with acrylic colors on canvas. The method helps participants express their feelings in a safe way by associating a color with a feeling. Each participant takes home 3 completed paintings at the end of the workshop. And, NO, you do not need any art experience to participate!Make sure you arrive a few minutes early and wear comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting a little dirty; we will supply aprons and all supplies.
