Spring 2021 Art Therapy Sessions Celebrate Black and Women’s History Months

The Risa Fund’s partnership with ArtReach GW provides free visual arts programming serving residents East of the River. The Spring 2021 semester featured 2 virtual workshop series. The first focused on Black History Month and freedom, and the second on Women’s History Month and using women who’ve persisted to inspire artistic processes through an art therapy lens.

The workshops were led by two GW Art Therapy students, who brought exciting new ideas for using art-making as a tool for wellness, self-awareness, insight, and community connection. Read more about the partnership.
