Creative Empowerment 

Whether you consider yourself an artist, or feel like you can’t draw a stick person, join artist and board certified art therapist Alicia Dawn Criswell as you learn new techniques to enhance creativity, reduce stress, and build connection with others.  We will learn to find inspiration in the everyday people, places, and things around us by delving into a weekly theme: Change, Loss, Acceptance, Relationships & Identity, and Meaning.  Each week a specific art directive will be introduced, including techniques and strategies for using a variety of art materials and methods.  Although not intended as a traditional therapy group, this workshop series aims to improve motivation, build technical skills, and increase confidence.

This 5-week therapeutic artmaking course, sponsored by Tricia’s Hope, is for those who have been touched by cancer: survivors, cancer patients, and/or their caregivers.
