What People Are Saying

" When I focus on art making, everything else disappears, and I don’t think about having cancer. Like meditation and yoga, it focuses my mind away from cancer and leaves me feeling calm and centered. "

— workshop participant

" I didn’t realize I had so much that needed to be said, but which I had no words for. Art became my voice. When I am at the workshops, I spend the time connecting with my inner self without the constant fear and demands that cancer puts on my life. This time is sacred and healing for me. "

— workshop participant

" So much of what we do today involves technology. Using my hands to create art relaxes my mind and calms my nerves. I shut off the constant chatter in my mind, and relax into creating something beautiful with my hands. "

— workshop participant

"I have met new people, made new friends, and learned so much from others who are going through the same thing that I am. I look forward to these creative workshops, and have even changed appointments to make sure that I don’t miss one. "

— workshop participant

" I have always been afraid of making art, but now I don’t worry about what others think of me or the outcome. I just enjoy the process, and have been pleasantly surprised at what I have created. I have actually created art that I am proud of. "
