Art for Peace:  
A 21st Century Phenomenon to Counter Traumatic Times

Art for Peace Event cover 20th anniversary

Join us to commemorate twenty years of a free, open art studio group to recognize two decades of our creative responses to traumatic events beginning with September 11, 2001.

Hammond Museum is grateful to share this virtual art-making event with art therapist, educator and author Barbara Fish as she holds a space for others to gather in community. The group’s intention is to use creativity to become grounded, so that we may be responsive instead of reactive, despite the traumatic events that we witness.

Our anniversary group will meet Friday, 9/10/21  from 7-10 EST, 6-9 CST, 4-7 PT on Zoom.

“During this time of international crisis, and personal stress, it is important for all of us to respond with clarity.  When we are afraid, the potential is greater for us to react rather than respond consciously. The Art for Peace group supports us in thinking clearly and being grounded."  - Barbara Fish

Our on-going Art for Peace groups convene weekly on Wednesday and Friday evenings.
