    Art4Healing® Workshop

    Art4Healing® workshops are 2-hour experiences that teach you how to express your feelings with color using the Art4Healing® method developed by Art & Creativity, Inc. An Art4Healing® workshop allows participants to get in touch with inner feelings that many times words cannot express. Our certified facilitator will lead participants through a series of prompts as they respond by painting abstractly with acrylic colors on canvas. The method helps participants express their feelings in a safe way by associating a color with a feeling. Each participant takes home 3 completed paintings at the end of the workshop. And, NO, you do not need any art experience to participate!

    Make sure you arrive a few minutes early and wear comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting a little dirty; we will supply aprons and all supplies.

    This workshop is offered in partnership with KSU Counseling and Psychological Services.

    Mindful Dance

    Dancing Mindfulness is a group class that will focus on integrating breath and body. The facilitator will begin by leading the class in some simple stretches and then invite the participants to begin integrating their own movements to assist with cultivating healing, mindfulness, self-awareness, building confidence and of course FUN! It is encouraged to use a beginner's mind and no dance knowledge is required for this class.

RESERVE YOUR SPOT FOR UPCOMING EVENTS NOW

Are you looking for more opportunities to practice your observational drawing skills? Or perhaps you would like to try drawing from life for the first time without enrolling in a costly course? Please join us on Thursday nights when our exhibitions are open for an opportunity to draw from life!

Each week we will rotate the drawing location in our galleries and the subject of the program between a clothed model, nude model, and objects from our collection. This program is a bring-your-own material event – pencil and paper only. The museum will provide drawing boards to participants upon request.
