Art & Music

Using Creativity to Explore & Express Your Emotions

Art and music classes provide an opportunity to tap into one's creativity to explore and express the emotions that come up while on the cancer journey. The programs are for those currently dealing with cancer in their daily lives. This includes those in treatment, those who are coping with the physical and/or emotional side effects of treatment, those who are actively supporting someone with cancer or someone who is grieving the recent loss of a loved one from cancer.

Support for these programs is provided by Cuyahoga Arts & Culture
