Studies show that art therapy can help improve the emotional, physical and psychological health of senior citizens.
An art therapy workshop Monday, July 17, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Pasadena Senior Center will be led by Norma Green, an art therapist who has been in private practice for 20 years. The workshop is open to members and non-members of the Pasadena Senior Center
Green will show paintings by renowned artists, and participants will use pastels and pads of newsprint paper to express their emotions.
“There is great joy and wonderment in the discovery and expression of one’s own abilities to create and give real form to ideas and feelings,” she said.
Register at the Welcome Desk. No prior artistic experience is required. A $5 materials fee will be payable at the door.
