Art Therapy Workshop for Members

Virtual Experience with Ikuko Acosta

Tuesday, July 26, 2022
6:00 PM–7:00 PM

Rubin Museum members are invited to join Ikuko Acosta, Director of the New York University Art Therapy Program, for an evening of self-healing and creativity.

In this online art therapy workshop, participants will use a drawing exercise inspired by the current exhibition, Healing Practices: Stories from Himalayan Americans, to gain insights into themselves through creating, sharing, and processing their artwork. Attendees will also leave with a basic understanding of the field of art therapy.

An artistic background and/or skills are not required to participate in this event.
