Hope Center offers healing art workshop

Gainesville — The process of creating art has often been seen as a healing experience.  The Hope Center of Texoma hopes to bring healing to those who have lost a loved one through art and creativity.  The Healing Arts Workshop will be offered as a two-part session on February 13 & 20 from 1-2:30 p.m. at the Muenster State Bank at 1601 U.S. Highway 82 in Gainesville.

Anyone in the community is invited to attend this workshop.  Participants will discover a creative way to remember their loved ones as well as have a chance to share with other attendees.

“By attending this workshop, participants will be able to create something that incorporates their memories into the piece,” said Jolene Senek, LBSW, CT, GC-C, Bereavement Coordinator and facilitator of the group. “This not only makes the piece unique but it can be a meaningful and healing experience for the bereaved.”

There is no fee to attend the event, but you must RSVP so that The Hope Center may adequately prepare materials for the event.  Please RSVP by Feb. 6 at 903-868-9315 or at

This event is sponsored by The Hope Center, a community outreach program in accordance with the mission of Home Hospice of Grayson County.  Home Hospice has been providing care and support, comfort, and healing to the greater Texoma area for the past 30 years and has established the Hope Center to further its programs in grief support, community education and palliative care.  For more information, visit
