"I kept going to support groups because people kept saying I needed to. When people ask me about Living Art, I say I didn’t start healing until my first workshop and I didn’t know how broken I was." B., Workshop participant
“It’s nice for me to come to Living Art and be an artist, not a survivor. We spend all our time wondering if we’ll survive another day or year. It was such a relief to relax here. You can just be the regular person you were before the health hiccup happened.” S. M-K., Workshop participant
"It is rare that an organization offers its service at no cost to the participant. I also love the camaraderie, support and inspiration from both staff and participants." Tana Ostrowski, Workshop facilitator
"When illness strikes, it's a chaotic and confusing time. Living Art gave me the opportunity to dive into that chaos and pull out something concrete, whether it was a mask, a painting or a poem. That creative process was a lifeline that led me back to myself.” Workshop participant
“Over the years things can re-trigger your trauma. You feel alone in your head always thinking about cancer. Living Art is a break from that.” N.G.M., Workshop participant
“Living Art was the one place I felt I could come and show up just as I was. It was safe. It took me out of my world where I was trapped in a body that was wrapped in pain." H.T., Workshop participant
"My time at Living Art is such a small time compared to the rest of my life but it doesn’t feel like a little bit of time, it feels BIG—what it gives me feels big. It helps me remember who I am." B.D., Workshop participant
