Healing Through the Arts

Healing Through the Arts

A collaboration between the Gunnison Arts Center and The Center for Mental Health

Made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley. 

Shape, see, move, hear, and feel what’s inside. This series of art activities and classes is aimed at helping all in our community understand and safely express emotions during difficult times. The Gunnison Arts Center has teamed up with The Center for Mental Health to offer this mindful art series to the Gunnison Valley. We’re here to help you explore and express creativity and emotions through art. Come participate in-person or in a virtual class and even download an activity to do in your own space, on your own time.

Scholarships are available!
