The Hofstra University School of Health Sciences and Human Services is hosting an exhibit of art works created by individuals in local creative arts therapy programs. It will be held this Monday, Feb. 24 from 6-8 pm in Hagedorn Hall, second floor, south campus.
The artists are participants in two unique creative arts programs: Life Options at United Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, Inc. and The Helen Keller National Center, which helps individuals who are deaf-blind. Specialized and inventive techniques used in the creation of the art pieces will be explained and discussed with attendees. Create art therapists Laura Bollet and Samantha Hasher, a 2006 graduate of Hofstra’s Master of Arts program in creative arts therapy, will speak at the event.
The event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is requested. Please visit hofstra.edu/catartgallery to register, or for more information, please contact the Co-Director of Creative Arts Therapy Program, Joan Bloomgarden, at Joan.S.Bloomgarden@hofstra.edu or 516-463-5300.
