Self-care – Art Classes
Every time we fly, we hear flight attendants say, “In emergency, please place the oxygen mask on you before assisting others.”
As Sumi;s care partner, I take this advice seriously by realizing the importance of maintaining my well-being and self-care. For self-care, I had been taking “The Art of the Caregiving” classes offered by the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center in 2018 and 2019. We learn many different forms of art as an outlet for expressing ourselves. During the class, I get so engrossed in the art projects that momentarily I forget about caregiving.
In 2020, due to Covid, these classes were suspended. Starting April 2020, they are resumed virtually. These classes are free for caregivers and no previous art experience is needed.
