Cancer Support -- Art Therapy Workshops
*This class is temporarily canceled. Please check back for updates*
Join us at Boulder Community Health and Rocky Mountain Cancer Center for
monthly workshops co-facilitated by art therapists, Cindy Gordon and Tamara
Schardt, who will help those affected by cancer (patients, caregivers
and family members) discover the therapeutic benefits of self-expression
through art. No art experience necessary.

Do you want to have an art piece featured in the late spring RMCC/BCH
Patient Art Show? We will start to think of artwork ideas, build onto

as how much self-disclosure is desired. Participants who do not wish to
participate in the show are invited to come and use the art materials
in an open-studio format.
