PREVENTION — The re-establishment of a positive identity - developing the ability to express ideas in original works of art. Members find a new identity which incorporates illness but retains a positive sense of self identity.
Members develop enhanced awareness of their environment by identifying and describing objects both in their environment and in works of art. Participating members classify objects on the basis of characteristics such as color, texture, and form and develop a visual vocabulary of line, colors, and textures.
