Happy New Year!
This meeting will be discussion based and include introductions, answering questions and brainstorming ideas for the quarterly educational meetings. We will be using Art Therapy – Collage in order to facilitate discussion. As with all our meetings, you are welcome to participate as much or as little as you like.
What is Collage?
The term collage originates from the French word coller, which means “to glue.” The collage is a form of visual art, created by gathering many different pieces or chunks of things and assembling the pieces into one, collective piece of art. Read more.
How is this helpful to brain aneurysm survivors?
Collage allows expression of self and can allow expression of feelings and emotions that someone might not be able to verbalize. It also provides eye hand coordination, spatial orientation and physical exercise for an affected limb.
