Healing through Art

Wednesday, August 16, 6:30 p.m.

During World War I many children were forced to cope with life-altering experiences, including the sudden death of a parent. Sometimes drawing and writing were used to help these children express their feelings towards war. Join Dr. Gaelynn P. Wolf Bordonaro, Director of the Emporia State University Art Therapy Program, for a lecture on the benefits of art making in response to trauma. Attendees will be given the opportunity to participate in an art therapy project. Offered in conjunction with the centennial exhibition Vive l’Amérique: French Children Welcome their American Ally. Drinks and snacks available.
