Our Classes

Putting Art at the HeART of Healing

Creativity

“Finding people who have had, or are going, through similar issues has helped me know I am not going crazy. It has given me resources to get help, learn coping skills, and have a community
I can call on, learn from, cry and laugh with.”

Hirsch Participant

Classes, workshops, and other activities at the Hirsch Center are designed to facilitate creative expression through hands-on learning and experimentation in the arts. We believe that everyone is creative. Although the hectic pace of modern life can break our connection with natural creativity, it never really leaves us — and after a cancer diagnosis, it can be an invaluable tool for self-empowerment and healing.

Our programs are designed to offer a no-pressure, relaxing environment to investigate or reawaken inspiration, while you acquire new techniques and insights from area experts who work or teach in the arts. All programs are free of charge to cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers!

Wellness

“I came to this workshop mostly because of  my cancer. Through the class, I felt encouraged, uplifted and motivated. I was able to express myself without feeling judged. Making new friends took away some of my fears.” Hirsch Participant

Why offer free arts instruction? Because we believe, and studies have shown, that regular artistic practice relieves stress, enhances mindfulness, and can generally improve health outcomes. Making art connects us to a profound source of creative flow; we are invited to enter an inner dialogue between ourselves and the materials, which can open up avenues for emotional expression shown to decrease stress and depression.

Along with the benefits of creativity, Hirsch Wellness Network provides activities that foster a balance between the physical and the emotional. Yoga is another very popular class. With a rich tradition going back thousands of years,  yoga has been shown to improve flexibility, build strength and stimulate a healthy immune system response. We invite you to sign up and begin exploring!
