Join us Saturday September 25, 2021 at 11:00AM for Healing Hands, an art creation workshop with local artist Chanel Thervil.

During this workshop you will have a chance to create a mixed media collage that reflects on the things you appreciate about your hands. Take time to reflect on the positive things that your hands help you do and experience everyday. The work of your hands is often get taken for granted.

The workshop’s icebreaker and facilitated group discussion will center around themes of self-care, reflection on positive characteristics about our hands/bodies, resilience, and acceptance of change.
