Kits to Heart Art For Cancer Wellness Workshop

01/25/2023 08:00 AM - 08:00 PM

Every season, Kits to Heart offers free, virtual Art for Cancer Wellness workshops for patients, caregivers, survivors, and healthcare workers. Participants are guided to explore a theme designed to explore feelings, increase self-expression, foster hope and strengths, identify coping skills, and engage in mindfulness and grounding. Materials are included and no art experience necessary!

Launched in 2022, the Art for Cancer Wellness Program is made possible thanks to funding from the 2021 Changemaker Challenge—organized and supported by the United Way of Central Maryland, Horizon Foundation, Women's Giving Circle of Howard County, and Community Foundation of Howard County.

Program Offerings

Led by licensed art therapists, our Art for Cancer Wellness groups are tailored to the following populations:

  • Patients: Adults currently undergoing cancer treatments and those who are within six months of treatments,
  • Survivors: Adults who are more than six months out of treatments,
  • Young Adults: Patients ages 19 to 29,
  • Caregivers: Adult caregivers and family members of patients with cancer, and
  • Oncology Healthcare Workers: Clinicians and providers—including oncologists, nurses, and social workers—who work with people with cancer.
