Virtual Art of Healing

Burst Book


Create a “Burst Book” to express an outpouring of gratitude during this month’s Art of Healing virtual workshop led by Kristin Heron. Learn how to fold and paste paper into this impressive, pocket-sized piece of art.

We’ll use paint and collage techniques to decorate the book and then write your favorite quotes, words, verses or sayings that give thanks. Or, carry the book with you during the holiday season to use as an artful journal to record your thoughts of gratitude.

No art experience is needed. Sponsored in part by AdventHealth, OMAM's popular Art of Healing program is a free art experience offered monthly to anyone in a medical situation, caregiver, healthcare worker, survivor or person in need of reflective time.
