We cannot deny the ways that the COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped our lives, but we don’t have to go it alone! Join art therapist Sarah Pousty, museum educator Dalila Scruggs, and social work intern Lula Zeray as we make space for self-care, conversation, and connection. We’ll rest and reflect in community, explore a work of art in depth through close looking and discussion, then create artworks of our own.
This online program is free, but space is limited, and registration is required. A Zoom link will be provided by email upon confirmation.
