Healthcare professionals face increasingly stressful situations in their workplace. Creating work-life balance through their own artistic endeavors provides, “a way to utilize art as a calming agent in a stress-laden environment while demonstrating the health and healing benefits of artistic images and expressions.”**(capearts.org)

The April 15th virtual event was a great success!
