Arts As Healing Foundation's First Public Art Classes

Saturday, August 8, 2020, 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Arts As Healing Foundation (AAH), a nonprofit that brings the therapeutic benefits of art to cancer patients and those with chronic illness, will hold its first public art class titled “Fundamentals of Drawing.” The six-week interactive Zoom course will be held either Thursdays beginning July 16 or Saturdays beginning July 18. All proceeds will benefit the Arts As Healing Foundation’s programs and services.

“Fundamentals of Drawing” is a hands-on artistic experience that will feature instructional demonstrations and one-on-one guidance for each participant’s full color creation. AAH’s Executive Director Vicki Friedman will teach the Zoom classes along with assistance from artist volunteers. Friedman, a trained artist and two-time cancer survivor, brings her extensive skill set to the course which is designed for both beginners and those with drawing experience.

Founded in 2013, Arts As Healing Foundation conducts classes at area hospitals including Siteman Cancer Centers, Missouri Baptist Cancer Center, and Mercy Hospital at South County. The nonprofit hosts weekly studio classes at its permanent headquarters located at 11804 Borman Dr., visits hospitals to provide chairside art instruction for patients receiving treatments, and holds collaborative events with other nonprofits.
