Mindful Artmaking @ the McClung (Encore Program)

The McClung Museum invites UT students who are currently enrolled in classes to another session of mindful artmaking and discussion with art therapist, Rachel McMillian. With the paintings of Shane Pickett as a back drop, students will explore their mental wellbeing through expression and guided conversation in a thoughtful group session.

Space is limited and pre-regitration is required. A link to register will be available closer to the program date. This program is a repeat of the earlier session in April to serve additional students.

It being presented as a compliment to the exhibtion, "Shane Pickett: Djinong Djina Boodja (Look at the Land that I Have Traveled)", on view at the McClung Museum through May 7.
