Therapeutic Use of Art Making


About the Programme

Combining art and therapy, Cancer Survivors can experience the therapeutic effects of art making conducted by an Occupational Therapist with different art materials as well as seek comfort and support with like-minded individuals through heart-to-heart sharing sessions on coping with the illness and treatment regime. 


Classes will be conducted at our Health Resource Centre located at the NUH Medical Centre, Level 10, Corridor G.
