Program Details

澳门六合彩开奖现场直播 Artful Healing workshops take place free of charge in group settings or bedside in patients鈥 rooms at regularly scheduled times. Each workshop begins with a presentation of images from the 澳门六合彩开奖现场直播鈥檚 world-renowned collection, chosen to focus on one of various themes ranging from animals to jewelry. Participants have an opportunity to 鈥渆xplore鈥 the 澳门六合彩开奖现场直播 and connect with artworks spanning six continents and thousands of years of history! Following the presentation and discussion, participants make art in a hands-on activity related to what they have seen. From Chinese brush painting to Styrofoam printmaking, wire sculptures, painting on canvas, sculpting with clay, and embossing foil pendants: the activities are varied and use studio-quality art materials. 澳门六合彩开奖现场直播 Artful Healing instructors are trained and experienced art educators who collaborate closely with hospital staff and will adapt to any specific needs.
