    Charleston Heals Through Art
    Tuesday, September 1, 5:30 PM
    Main Library
    Storyhour Room
    The creative art process has been used for hundreds of years to help people identify emotions, encourage communication and promote healing. More recently, art was part of therapies offered in both Sandy Hook, Conn. and Boston, Mass. to help residents deal with widespread emotional upheaval following tragedies in those communities. Understanding this connection, local art therapists, educators, mental health professionals and artists are offering free art sessions three times a week to help Charleston-area residents struggling with feelings of stress, sadness and grief related to the shootings at Emanuel AME Church. The group, Hearts Mend Hearts, will hold informal, drop-in art sessions on Sundays and Tuesdays with more structured, art-related workshops on Thursdays. There is no age limit and no art experience is needed. Art materials are being provided for the free sessions. Registration is not required.
