Creative for Health
Creative For Health: Arts and Writing Workshops for People Affected by Cancer
Nothing feels better than to fully immerse yourself in an art project. The world around you falls away. Time passes pleasantly without notice.
Research also suggests that creativity is good for our health. Regular practice has been shown to reduce the harmful effects of stress, improve immune system function, and help us cope with anxiety and depression.
At Creative For Health you will paint, write poetry, dance, sing, and more with experienced, compassionate arts professionals in a fun, inviting, and supportive environment.
