TwistShops are art therapy focused workshops curated by Twist Out Cancer that promote healing, relaxation and emotional recovery through art therapy based interventions that are designed to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress related to cancer.
On Sunday April 7th, join Twist Out Cancer and Imerman Angels for a TwistShop, an art therapy focused workshop that centers on storytelling and healing for individuals touched by cancer.
Led by Jacqueline Carmody, a licensed clinical art therapist, and Twist Out Cancer Board Member, participants will be guided through a series of exercises that will promote the flow of healthy conversation and positive feedback related to art-making. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect, let go of stress and be present during the time they spend with others creating artwork. Participants will have access to a variety of art-making materials and the opportunity to reflect in a comfortable, safe and supportive environment.
The event will run from 2:00-5:00 pm.
Refreshments will be provided.
The cost to participate is $15.00 which is highly subsidized.

Twist Out Cancer is an international non-profit charitable organization that provides psychosocial support to individuals touched by cancer through creative arts programming. Founded in 2011, Twist Out Cancer has impacted over 100,000 people through our online and community wide programs.
Imerman Angels was created on the belief that no one should have to face cancer alone and without the necessary support. Through our unique matching process, Imerman Angels partners anyone, any age, any gender, anywhere and any cancer type seeking support with someone just like them – a “Mentor Angel”. A Mentor Angel is a cancer survivor or caregiver who most importantly has faced the same type of cancer.
