Expressive Art: 3-Part Series

Tuesdays: August 15, 22, 29
6:00–8:00 pm

Kimberly Bailey & Meredith Smith, Healing Art Guides

Come and experience creating with painting, drawing, and mixed media through creative expression. We aim to relax, inspire, and strengthen your artistic spirit. If you are affected by cancer, art can give you a way to talk about your feelings. It can also allow you to focus on a project and think about something other than your diagnosis. Doing art itself is therapeutic and it is the process, not the product, that is the primary focus. We encourage you to come with a sense of curiosity, adventure, and a willingness to jump in and try something new.

An art background is not required for these classes.

Death Cafe

Tuesday, September 19
3:00–5:00 p.m.

Co-facilitated by Jan Austin, MFT,
Susan A. Barber, Community Education Manager, Mission Hospice & Home Care, and

Jeanette Fedasz, RN, MS, Clinical and Facility Outreach RN, Mission Hospice & Home Care

At a Death Cafe, people (often strangers) gather to eat cake, drink tea, and discuss death. Our objective is “to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.” A Death Cafe is a group-directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives, or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.
