MONTEREY, Calif. — The art-healing connection will be explored in a free workshop on December 7 for those grieving the loss of a loved one this holiday season. Art therapist Janet Steinberg will lead the workshop, sponsored by Community Hospital’s Hospice of the Central Coast. Creating art can have measurable physiological results, such as reducing stress and easing physical and emotional pain. Participants will combine art and sharing to begin to understand their own difficulties and strengths and explore ways to cope with their loss. No art experience is necessary. The workshop is from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, December 7 at Westland House, 100 Barnet Segal Lane, Monterey. To register or to learn more about Community Hospital’s bereavement and end-of-life programs, please call Hospice of the Central Coast at 649-7758.
