Expressions of Hope & Healing

Dare County Arts Council and The Outer Banks Hospital have partnered on a project called Expressions of Hope & Healing of the Outer Banks Cancer Community bringing free art workshops and artistic resources to community members who have been affected by cancer.

 

Artist Fay Davis Edwards and cancer survivor Susan Lawrence are working together to ensure that anyone who has been touched by cancer in any capacity (cancer patients, their family members/friends, caretakers, cancer survivors and our local oncology healthcare professionals) can share their journey and experiences through the arts.

The program consists of a wide variety of art activities for people who have been affected by cancer.

Upcoming Workshops

Artist Fay Davis Edwards will be coordinating all of the workshops. Silk scarf painting, ceramics, batiks, writing exercises, journaling, weaving, and painting are some of the media that will be offered to class participants.

Free workshops are held periodically at Dare County Arts Council, located at 300 Queen Elizabeth Avenue in Manteo. Upcoming workshops will be listed below. A number of Outer Banks artists will be helping lead these workshops. 

-  Join artist Sophie Castellanos for a free Expressions of Hope & Healing Zoom workshop on Tuesday, November 24 at 3pm, where participants will be making painting watercolor mosaics. Register online here.

Individuals interested in private sessions and artists interested in leading an Expressions workshop can contact Fay directly at faydavisedwards@gmail.com.
