Heart to Home –
An Art Healing Program

This is an art healing program designed to assist children who have been impacted by cancer. The group sessions will utilize art to further cultivate sharing and strengthen the connection between mentees and their mentors. Group art activities will help provide mentees safe avenues for self-expression, increase coping skills and address the impact of cancer on the youth. Through creative activities as well as connecting and sharing amongst the group, mentees will gain access to additional support in dealing with painful circumstances as well as skills to reduce stress, build resilience and increase self confidence.
