Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System is teaming up with certified art and music therapist Jack Cheney to help children heal through art and music. Children ages six through 16 can participate in this multi-media experience for free.
The Art for Healing Workshop will allow children and teenagers to use art and music as tools to discover hidden strengths and insights. Cheney has been a part of the Salinas Valley Memorial System art and music therapy program for years and is passionate about the healing powers of drawing, collage, painting and musical instruments.
“Children facing grief, illness and even ordinary social pressures can find healing through art,” says Jack Cheney, certified art and music therapist. “It’s a joy to help people explore their creative talents and in the process feel better about themselves and overcome challenges.”
The workshop will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 20. All of the art and music supplies will be provided. Registration is required by calling 831-759-1951 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
