"Art is not so much expressing oneself, as it is discovering oneself"

Art is Good workshops are beginner art classes offered by The David S. Zocchi Brain Tumor Center to kids & teens whose parent or immediate family member has either been diagnosed with, or has passed away from a brain tumor. These classes are offered to give them the opportunity to socialize with others who are in the same situation. It is not therapy, but a forum for expression either through creativity, friendship or just being. The children are invited to bring a friend. A social worker is available upon request for families that would like counseling.
