TwistShops welcome individuals who have been touched by cancer to engage in art therapy based workshops that focus on utilizing the arts as a mechanism for healing.+ Read More
Survivors, caregivers and previvors are invited to participate. Participants will be guided by a licensed art therapist through a variety of art-making activities that will allow participants to process their past and current experiences as a patient, caregiver or supporter of someone with cancer. Through storytelling and mindful art-making, the intention is to help participants explore different emotions, and in turn revive self, heal and find ways to move forward.
Starting in 2020, Twist Out Cancer will be expanding our Twistshop programming to the virtual space! These programs are open to the public and last an hour. All virtual programs are free of charge and are led by trained art therapists who are well versed in the Twistshop curriculum.
Join us every Tuesday at 1:00 pm CST for a virtual Twistshop featuring Jacqueline Carmody, Licensed Clinical Art Therapist. Jackie will be engaging the group in guided art-making activities each week that will allow participants to process their experiences with uncertainty, isolation and loneliness. There is no cost to participate and everyone is welcome.+ Read More
