Art for the Soul Program

Hoag’s Art for the Soul Program is a series of classes/workshops that use different approaches to art to evoke relaxation, a space for creativity and time to spend with others in the cancer community. Art has been shown to be a therapeutic outlet for expressing difficult thoughts and feelings, and managing symptoms of cancer treatment.

You are encouraged to join us, regardless of experience or skill set!

Thank you to our generous donors for making these programs available:
