“Twistshops” are art therapy focused workshops 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.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have pivoted to run these programs completely virtually for individuals touched by cancer and the larger public that may be feeling isolated and lonely during this unprecedented time.
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.
In 2021, Twist Out Cancer will provide Twistshop programming in the virtual space! These programs are open to the public and last an hour. All virtual programs are led by trained art therapists who are well versed in the Twistshop curriculum.
Jacqueline Carmody is a Twist Out Cancer Board Member, Brushes with Cancer Artist, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Registered Board Certified Art Therapist. Jaqueline will be running our signature TwistShop programs and is excited to bring this unique program to the community!
