Therapeutic Painting at Mission Hope Cancer Center

by Ruth Collis

Patients found a relaxing session of painting with thick paint at the Mission Hope Cancer Center in Santa Maria, California where I demonstrated what delight painting the Simple Impasto Rose is. See a short video on the event and what floral originals are available.

The center bought paint and supplies in efforts to start an art program of bringing in one art instructor once a month to help with the healing process of inspiring creativity and bring some therapeutic effects. The students learned how to form a simple impasto rose for themselves, using my rose and demo as an example.

One of the rose paintings from the demo will be offered as a Giveaway to one random signup to my newsletter hereI will draw a name on Sunday, October 20, 2019 and email the winner.
