The art therapy workshops organised at the Clinic Saint-Jean use creativity as a means for the patient to cope with the experience of living with cancer. Whether through collage, drawing, painting or clay modelling, this is a method of transposing one’s internal condition or present preoccupations and giving them expression as form and colour. One does not need to know how to draw, since aesthetic appearance is not the objective. Neither is technique necessary; in fact, spontaneity is the order of the day.
Clinic Saint-Jean has set itself the goal of developing this support care for the benefit of persons who have to go through the ordeal of cancer.
