|PROGRAM||The Des Moines Pastoral Counseling Center is pleased to offer two 6-week art activity groups for adults who seek to explore hope and healing through creativity. Projects may include collage work, mosaics, journal making, mandalas, painting or other activities. Participants will learn healthy coping skills to alleviate life’s daily stressors, including depression and anxiety. No previous art skills are needed to participate. We will provide a safe space for discovery and reflection. The group is open to adults in the community. Current clients of the Center are encouraged to discuss with their counselors whether this group might be a good complement to their ongoing treatment.|
|COST||$150 per person for a six week class. (Includes supplies.) Scholarships may be available for current clients of the Center at the recommendation of their counselors.|
