Art therapy can assist you in processing and exploring your cancer experience, which helps you to heal emotionally. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to transform your radiation mask using art supplies to express yourself- whether it’s to tell the story of what you’ve been through, to express your thoughts and feelings, or bring healing energy in. However you personally decide to transform your mask is up to you, so trust your instincts. The process of transforming the mask is therapeutic.
If you no longer have your radiation mask, check with your radiation oncologist to see if they have masks that are no longer in use or perhaps substitute it with a paintable face mask from a local craft store.
Prior to the workshop, you will want to have all of the supplies that you desire for the workshop on hand. The resource links below can help you get ready.
