Art Play Workshops



September 11 is at the Buchanan Art Center and September 14 is at the Marie Yeager Cancer Center

Art Play is a supportive service for children in Berrien County who are impacted by cancer.  These workshops are at no cost to children whose have been touched by a family member’s cancer (parent, grandparent, sibling, classmate, or other significant person in their life) as well as for stable oncology pediatric patients. 

Holly Garces, Art Therapist, is the lead artist for the Art Play Workshops that coincide with the Rainbows of Hope Cancer Support Group.
  This support group meets on the 2nd Thursday of every month March through November 2017 from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.  All who are impacted by cancer are encouraged to come.  The adults can attend the Rainbows of Hope Cancer Support Group while the children are in the next room participating in an Art Play Workshop. 

Next date is: Thursday, September 14 - Come join us for a fun art project of painting colorful umbrellas!
