Relieving The Stresses Of Cancer With Art Therapy
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) The experience of having cancer can be very stressful on the patient, their families and caregivers.
Mountain States Tumor Institute is offering a free quarterly art and public workshop to help relieve some stress. This art project is called String Art.
Participants dip their string into ink, and from there, can see if images stand out on their paper. When they do, the participants can use watercolors to color in the images.
The workshop is open to all in the cancer community, including survivors.
"Art therapy in the medical community and art community has really been beneficial for wellness and improving immune function and just relieving tension, stress and it's quite therapeutic," adds Nicole Thomas, an oncology social worker.
The Art and Healing Workshop takes place August 23rd from one to four p.m. This free event will be held in the Chestnut Conference Room at the Mountain States Tumor Institute.
You don't have to be a talented artist to participate. Please R.S.V.P. to Nicole at 814–1699.
