Paint Break is a free, therapeutic painting experience for cancer patients, survivors, and their caregivers in the Mount Auburn community.

Registration Details

Registration is closed.

Paint Break is offered the third Thursday of every month (except July and August). Advance registration is required. 

Fees & Payment

This program is supported in part by grants from the Watertown Cultural Council and Cambridge Arts, local agencies which are supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency. Additional funding is provided by the Sigmund E. Herzstein Jr. Trust, the Marino Health Foundation, the Crivello Fund, and the Hoffman Breast Center Fund.

Description

Paint Break is a free, therapeutic painting experience for cancer patients, survivors, and their caregivers in the Mount Auburn community. This program offers a supportive environment where patients, survivors, and loved ones can expressively work through their journey in a shared space.

Every artist will work on their own pieces independently, but will also have the opportunity to interact with one another during creative, mind-body inspired warm up exercises. Materials are provided, including 9" x 12” stretched canvas and acrylic paints. Experienced artists are welcome to bring their own subject matter, non-toxic art materials, and larger canvas if preferred.

Participants will meet in the Herzstein Wellness Center on the third floor of the Wyman building at Mount Auburn Hospital from 10:30am-1:00pm. The event is offered on the third Thursday of each month.
All experience levels welcome!
