Each year, CCAA presents Memorial Medical Center’s Complementary Therapy art classes and exhibit. This art group is designed to teach participants to unlock their emotions and ideas, and bring clarity and definition to life experiences by expressing themselves through art, photography and writing. The classes are open to cancer patients, survivors and their caregivers. The culminating exhibition runs through the month of October.
Complementary therapies are those that can be used along with conventional medicine therapies that have been proven to be safe and effective. While complementary therapies are not used to cure disease, many of them have been shown to help relieve patients’ symptoms and improve the quality of their lives by minimizing the side effects of conventional treatments or by providing psychological and physical benefits. Watch more about the program here.
In 2020 classes normally held at Mistlin Gallery were forced to go to a virtual format, but coordinator, Galen Martin, and the participants were up to the challenge of virtual classes for continuing their art, writing and photography explorations. The video below showcase their work since we are unable to host an in-person reception and event. Congratulations!
