Healing Through Art

Online Workshop for Artists and Creatives

Recent events have left a lot of people in despair and with feelings of hopelessness. Art is not only useful as a therapeutic tool, as a means for expression and transformation, but it can also be used to impact communities, large and small. It can be empowering both on a personal and social scale.

Are you interested in creating pieces that can help heal a community you are connected to or even inspire activism?

In this workshop, you will:
Gain a break-down of the therapeutic and communal functions of art, exploring which functions you already serve and/or which functions you could potential serve.
See inspiring examples of artists using their work for personal and community healing as well as activism.

Healing Through Art
Wednesday, June 22, 7:00 – 8:30p CST
Designed specifically with ARP members in mind, this workshop will be useful for artists, performers, and creatives in any artistic discipline interested in learning how to use their art to process emotions about recent events and to make a difference in their community.
