Interactive Virtual Art Sessions

Interactive Art Workshops

September 21 and October 19

12-1pm EST

September 21: Reconnecting To Our  Body Through Guided Drawings & Bilateral Body Mapping. Facilitated by Jacqueline Carmody, LCPC ATR-BC

Cancer has an immense impact on our bodies and well-being. We often feel disconnected and estranged from our bodies during treatment and lose our sense of self. This Twistshop will introduce participants to an integrative, sensorimotor-based art therapy modality that allows them to be in tune and more connected to the body and physical self. This session will provide tools that help awaken personal insights through intuitive art making. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a mind, body, and brain connection as they learn to foster focus, relaxation, and resilience.

October 19: Fall colors as inspiration for promoting awe and wonder and mindfulness – Facilitated by Mignon Dupepe LCPC, ATR

Come and create together as Jefferson Cancer Center partners with Twist Out Cancer for an evening of art making and connection. Join Twistshop facilitator, art therapist, and art explorer, Mignon Dupepe as we use fall colors as inspiration towards promoting awe and wonder and mindfulness. No prior artistic skills required to participate – just an interest & openness around art making. Join us for this great
opportunity to connect with others.

November Twistshop: Virtual Beading with Abby Match

Virtual Beading Meet-up With Abby Match!

Join Brushes With Cancer Inspiration, Abby Match, for an evening of beading, conversation, and connection!

During treatment, Abby turned to beading as therapy to calm her mind and work through the layers of trauma that entrenched her. As Abby realized the positive impact it had on her mental health, the hobby grew. What hobbies do you turn to during hard times? This event will make space for honest conversations about healing, self-care, and overcoming difficult times.

Abby has dedicated her time and talents to creating a special bracelet for Twist Out Cancer’s 10 Year Anniversary. Join us on November 3, 2022 to create your own bracelet with Abby’s guidance and the support of the Twist community!
