Art for the Soul

Art is a powerful tool in the healing of the mind-body language.  Medical science has proven that making art, drawing, painting, sculpture and collage, has a healing function that reduces the physiological stress triggered from a cancer diagnosis.  The immune system then has a chance to heal and work at it’s best to relieve pain, heal depression, and raise the spirit.

Art for the Soul provides art classes to cancer patients, caregivers and family members.  Please join us for a morning of creative expression and the opportunity to work with two talented artists.

Date/Time: Meets the first, third and fifth Thursday of each month, 10am to noon.
4th floor, room 402, Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center
