WILMINGTON — For cancer patients looking for an outlet to connect with others and find a sense of expressive healing, Cameron Art Museum is accepting registration for six-week classes.
Offered on Mondays from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., two sessions are available: Sept. 11 – Oct 16 and Nov. 6 – Dec. 11.
The classes will include writing, art-making and meditation, led by CAM teaching artist Donna Moore and art therapist Lorraine Perry. No prior experience is needed in either media.
According to CAM’s press release about the Art Enhances Health program, participating in a creative outlet can reshape the brain and boosts well-being by helping alleviate anxiety, depression and low self-esteem.
The classes are held in the Pancoe Art Education Center on CAM’s campus at 3201 S. 17th Street. Participants also gain access to gallery visits and free one-year memberships are available to anyone receiving treatment at the Zimmer Cancer Center at Novant’s NHRMC.
More information can be obtained by contacting museum school coordinator Amy Gibson at 910-726-9732.
