Art Expression with Lending Hearts

This is a small group setting (the entire family is welcome to participate) that will take place the first Saturday of each month (except for December, July, August & September) from 10 AM-11:30 AM at Allegheny Health Network’s Wexford Health + Wellness Pavilion. This bright, new building is minutes from the Warrendale exit off of I-79.  Certified art therapist, Gabriela Schmulevich will lead each month’s projects.  Gabriela is from Pittsburgh, attended Carnegie Mellon University and went to graduate school at George Washington University. While getting her masters, she interned at Washington DC’s Children’s Hospital where she worked in the oncology floor.  Be sure to RSVP to to reserve your space!  Please note, Art Expression will take a break over the summer months and resume in October.
