Expressing oneself through the arts, whether visual or musical, can help patients feel more relaxed, support pain management, and provide valuable coping skills. Sponsored by the Leonard P. Zakim Center for Integrative Therapies, the Expressive Arts Therapy program provides opportunities for adult patients to paint, write, and make jewelry, collages, and other visual media. Therapists also facilitate group experiences that explore active music making and listening, paired with mindfulness and relaxation techniques to decrease feelings of isolation and enhance quality of life for adult cancer patients. Materials for these sessions are provided by the Zakim Center, and no artistic experience is necessary.
The Open Arts Studio is open Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. All materials and art instruction are provided free of charge. Please contact the Zakim Center at 617-632-3322 for more details.
For information about current Expressive Arts Therapy offerings, visit the Zakim Center program calendar, or contact the Center at 617-632-3322, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
