If you haven’t attended these virtual workshops before, this is how it works: We are using the Microsoft Teams platform, which is similar to Zoom. It can be downloaded to your phone or computer for free, but you don’t necessarily have to download it. At the first session, information and background is provided on the healing art activity, you are then given instructions. Supplies are shipped by FedEx to particpants. The group will get back together in the second session to share and talk about your art. The supplies will be new and yours to keep. Please make sure you include your home address when you register.

 
Call Board-Certified Art Therapist, Mollie Borgione at 216.486.6544 to register or for more details. ​
