Art Expression


This expressive arts group program provides a community for cancer patients to meet with one another and share in a creative artistic experience. In a safe and confidential setting, members will be instructed in the use of painting and forms of art to create their own pieces. Under the guidance of an Art Therapist, the use of imagery, colours and textures are used to help members identify and explore feelings and gain insights into their experience with cancer. No previous art experience is required.
