Description

ScART – Emotional healing of surgical scars through art

Those who have had cancer are invited to participate in this emotionally empowering activity called ScART (or Scar Art).

Participants will gather with other survivors to look at their scars through a new lens, and create beautiful, custom works of art.

ScART participants share their journeys

ScART is a national paint program created by You Night Empowering Events, and offered by authorized ScART instructors. You Night is a program founded in 2013 that is dedicated to helping women and men embrace life beyond cancer. The company’s fundraising efforts support their “We Lift You Up” foundation, a 501c3 fund which creates empowering experiences for cancer survivors, with the ultimate objective of creating a national network of support.

Participants can be survivors (or their guests) who have any type of scar that they would like to paint on canvas.

THE PROCESS:

ScART (or “scar art”) is an abstract painting process where color theory and simple yet powerful painting techniques will be integrated to create a powerful, unique painting. Even if you’ve never painted before, class instructors will guide the class through the process of sketching the scar(s) on canvas, applying the modeling paste to represent scars unique markings, and to choosing just the right color palette to evoke the feelings you want to express. Simple brush strokes will be demonstrated for putting color on your painting. Remember – this is a unique and powerful experience where the PROCESS of seeing your scars turned into works of art is more significant than the PRODUCT, or actual artwork. Although the final product will be beautiful and meaningful, the shared experience and strong sensory memory you are creating with fellow scar bearers is even MORE important. FULL INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE EMAILED TO YOU ONCE YOU SIGN UP.

People with scars can be hard on themselves. ScART gives participants the freedom to transform their scars into something beautiful. The process allows for an open mind and the support of a community of other people who have experienced something similar.
