Family Friendly: Healing through Art

Wednesday, August 16, 2 p.m.

Art is fun. Art shares history. And, sometimes, art heals. During World War I, children were forced to cope with difficult experiences, as shown in the centennial exhibition Vive l’Amérique: French Children Welcome their American Ally. Drawing and writing were sometimes used to help children process the impact of war. Join us for a family-friendly art making experience as Dr. Gaelynn P. Wolf Bordonaro, Director of the Emporia State University Art Therapy Program, speaks about the powerful effect art creation can have on children. FREE with RSVP | J.C. Nichols Auditorium Lobby
