SSNS ART THERAPY GROUP HONOURS PAUL KLEE’S “CASTLE AND SUN” ON WORLD SCLERODERMA DAY JUNE 29TH, 2016
The Scleroderma Society of Nova Scotia is sponsoring a free Art Therapy Program for individuals living with scleroderma. A scleroderma caregiver is also welcome to accompany the participant to the Art Therapy sessions. Our Art Therapy Program is uniquely designed by our experienced and certified Art Therapist, Don Stevens who is knowledgeable about the disease. Don’s unique approach to Scleroderma Art Therapy is a vital part of scleroderma management, as it can assist and support individuals dealing with the difficult psychological aspects of living with this disease.
On June 29th, World Scleroderma Day, the SSNS Art Therapy Group dedicated one of their scleroderma Art Therapy group activities to Paul Klee who died of the disease on June 29th, 1940 . The activity was guided and chosen by our Art Therapist Don Stevens.
Don gave a brief biography of Paul Klee’s life and his works, and how he used his talents as a gifted artist to help support himself through his difficult psychological pain of dealing with scleroderma …. which is reflected in several works of his art while actively living with the disease.
As a group , the participants of the Art Therapy Program created their own interpretation of Paul Klee’s 1928 Castle and Sun. For more information on Paul Klee’s Castle and Sun work of art, please check out the following website:
