Expressive Arts Workshop
These workshops help patients tell their stories through different types of art. They are designed to assess, support and strengthen resilience and improve quality of life in oncology patients and caregivers. Each type of art is usually presented through a series of six to eight weekly workshops. We encourage you to participate in all sessions within a particular series; however, we understand that you might miss sessions or join once the series is already underway due to priorities in your care. We encourage patients and family members to participate in all sessions but also welcome anyone who can only join 1 class.
