Cancer Support -- Art Therapy Workshops

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.

January 6: Altered Books
Create your own personal visual journal by recycling and altering a book. Feel free to bring a book or materials of your own, but as always, materials will be provided.

February 3: Creation & Preparation for Art Show – OR – Open Studio
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 past pieces, and discuss issues surrounding displaying art – such 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.

March 2: Creation & Preparation for Art Show – OR – Open Studio​Participants will continue to work on their art piece(s) for the show or create art in the open studio.

April 6: Creation & Preparation for Art Show – OR – Open Studio
Participants will finish their art pieces, share and discuss them if they wish. Or, attendees can make art in the open studio.

May 4: Creation & Preparation for Art Show – OR – Open Studio
Participants will discuss how they want the art show presented. We will write a collective description of the show and individual artist statements; we will frame, figure out displays, and create name tags. Attendees can also choose to make art in the open studio.

**Date of the RMCC Patient Art Show TBD, late Spring 2020**
