Expressive Arts Program

Expressive Arts Program

Hoag’s Expressive Arts 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:

Gail Wirtz Costello Complimentary Therapies Fund
Robert M. McIntyre Memorial Fund


Ongoing Classes:

Healing Arts

Healing Arts provides a structured approach of guided art exercises designed to elicit a creative response that encourages the release of stress, grief, anger and many other emotions. By expressing themselves creatively, participants can document their experience in a profound way, thus creating a healing environment for themselves.

Creative Expressions

Creative Expressions provides an engaging, social environment to connect with others and express yourself through arts and crafts. Workshops include various projects where the goal is to have fun and be in the moment. Participants will leave with a project that they have created.
