Cancer survivors are invited to attend our free art classes called Expressions of Art & Hope. We have partnered with LUX Center for the Arts to offer you the opportunity to explore a creative process of self-expression and reflection to help you meet the challenges of diagnosis, treatment and beyond.
Sign up today. Early registration is encouraged as space is limited. Classes are held in the lower level of Saint Elizabeth from 6 - 8 p.m. and are taught by instructors from LUX Center for the Arts.
