Scribl Art Workshop: Story Shoes-Monday June 12, 5:30 PM at Ledyard Bill Library Building

PeaceLove began when cousins Matt Kaplan and Jeff Sparr wanted to change the way they saw people approaching mental health. They wanted to create a space that encouraged creativity, self expression, and storytelling. With the goal of making expressive arts programming as accessible as possible in a changing world, PeaceLove created Scribl.  This is an in-person experience that uses simple creative activities to help participants let go, reflect, and connect. This program is for teens and adults but children as young as 10 can participate if they have an adult present and participating in the workshop as well. Registration is required as is wearing a mask because of the affiliation with L &M Hospital.

June 12: Story Shoes – expressing each person’s unique story and life journey using three dimensional collage and stories.
