Artitude: A Partnership with Knoxville’s Cancer Support Community
March 31 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
ARTITUDE: A NIGHT OF CREATIVITY & SURVIVORSHIP
The Cancer Support Community’s Artitude is an event inspired by creation, celebration and survivorship. This annual gathering includes music, hors d’oeuvres, art making and a silent auction. The silent auctions showcases one-of-a-kind, up-cycled and unique works for the home and garden.
Dogwood Arts plans to work with the Cancer Support Community on Artitude and creative workshops for patients and caregivers throughout 2016 & 2017. To launch this new initiative, we will host an ebru scarf design workshop for patients before the fundraiser, and event supporters will also be able to make beautiful scarves onsite during the party.
WORKSHOPS FOR PATIENTS & CAREGIVERS
Scarves by You hosted our first workshop at the Cancer Support Community this April. Patients and caregivers printed colorful and cheerful scarves that can be worn or gifted. Participants will learn about ebru printing and patterns while creating wearable artwork that heals and transforms. For information about art workshops and services contact the CSC.
