Creating Valentine-Inspired Mandalas with Dr. Sharon Cook

January 29, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join Forge for an in-person arts session led by Dr. Sharon Cook. Sharon was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, which returned as metastatic in 2018. Throughout her cancer journey, Sharon has turned to artistic pursuits for coping and healing. During this two-hour session, Sharon will teach participants about Mandala techniques and lead us in the creation of our own works for art.

The focus of this class will be doing something healing for yourself or caring for someone else as a valentine gift. Maybe you want to create something beautiful for yourself to enjoy? Or maybe you want to make a Mandala for someone you know that is going through a hard time? Participants will have the option to work on white or black paper – All supplies will be provided.

Please join us for an afternoon of making art and joining in community with one another.

***This event is free and requires registration***
