Meditative Marbling:  This therapeutic art workshop led by local artist and art therapist Tova Speter (, invites you to take a little time to relax and recharge by making art as we explore themes of self care and resilience. This is an opportunity to pause, connect, and create some inner emotional space as we emerge from the overwhelming experiences faced during the pandemic. All materials will be provided. No previous art experience necessary.
