Virtual Twistshop-Self-soothing through the senses

Self-soothing through the senses
Self-soothing is doing things to calm and relax yourself through your five senses. Join Brushes with Cancer participants/friends, collaborators, and creators, Noah Plotkin and Mignon Dupepe for an evening of soothing practices, creative exploration, and connection. Using rhythm making and art processes, we will explore a deeper understanding of managing stress and supporting wellness by intentionally engaging in soothing enjoyable sensory experiences. No music or artistic skills required to participate-just an interest in using art materials and music for expression, growth, and relaxation.

Materials to be considered for this workshop include:

  • Watercolor or thick art paper-3 pieces-
  • Watercolor paints
  • Water/ watercolor brush/paper towels
  • Colorful markers-
  • Permanent black marker-thin if possible
  • Colorful pens
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick

Noah will be providing soothing melodies on an instrument called a HandPan along with various percussion items.
