Interested in running a workshop?

MindfulThe Gallery at Penn College will be hosting Mindful: Exploring Mental Health Through Art, an exhibition that explores the impact that mental illness is having on society, and the role the arts can play to both encourage positive self-expression and guide effective mental health promotion and treatment.

In conjunction with the exhibition, The Gallery is seeking artists to lead educational programming including workshops and lectures. The dates are mid-August through mid-October 2018.

We are seeking a wide range of activities and art forms, but the workshop must relate to art and mental health. Examples of titles: ‘Meditative Paper Cutting,’ ‘Art Journals for Healing.’ Workshops will begin or end with a tour of the exhibit Mindful: Exploring Mental Health through Art

Mindful was developed by the Society for Contemporary Craft, Pittsburgh. Read more about the exhibition.
