New Opportunities

A new teaching opportunity opened for me when the June Nylen Cancer Center in Sioux City was awarded a year-long grant to offer Art Therapy to cancer patients and their families. Classes in a variety of mediums are held at the Sioux City Art Center, adjacent to the cancer center. I am the watercolor person in a team of instructors, and am teaching four 4-day segments during the year.

I am not a trained therapist, but I am a good listener and teacher. Students enjoy my class as a respite from serious illness and ongoing treatment.
