Oncology Support Services  - 2023 Monthly Art Therapy Workshops

Please register via the registration info at the bottom of the page

Join us at Boulder Community Health and Rocky Mountain Cancer Center for monthly workshops with art therapists Cindy Gordon and Tamara Schardt. They will help those touched by cancer (patients, caregivers and family members) learn the healing benefits of self-expression through art. Participants are welcome to continue (or start) working on their project for the art show (date to be determined), or work on something they feel inspired to create. For those who would like something more structured, we will do some demonstrations or offer a suggested theme. No art experience is needed!

We will continue to meet online each month using the Zoom meeting application until otherwise notified. For most of these workshops, you can use any materials including colored pencils, markers, pastels, paints, or collage materials. If you need supplies, please let us know!


Emotions as a Landscape: In this workshop, participants will be invited to represent their emotions as a landscape. In this special session, we will be creating our art pieces within the safe container of a circle, or mandala. Please bring whatever materials you have on hand. The workshop will begin with guided breath work to center ourselves as we come together again to create and be inspired by each other. 

When: 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Where: Zoom link will be provided after registration
Cost: Free – Please consider donating to BCH Foundation

Tamara R. Schardt, MS
Tamara is a Masters-level art therapist, working toward board certification and registration. She’s also an artist, advocate, and educator who believes art is for everyone; it is a vehicle of expression that can amplify voices, reduce stress, build confidence, create connections and change, and shed light on adversities. Tamara works with clients across the lifespan, individually and in groups, using art therapy and verbal psychotherapy (talk), incorporating mindfulness, educational, adaptive and movement techniques.

Cindy Gordon, Ph.D., LPC, ATR-BC, CAAP
Cindy Gordon is a licensed professional counselor and a board-certified art therapist. She works with individuals and groups facing the challenges of depression, trauma, body image, grief, anxiety, medical issues and life transitions. Cindy works with clients using both verbal psychotherapy and non-verbal methods (art therapy, photography, and writing) to reduce stress, promote self-awareness, and gain insights about themselves.
