Free therapeutic ‘Heart on Art’ workshop offered

CROSSVILLE — Art is a great way for anyone to express their selves. Most artists seem to know how to create from their heart and express their imaginations. There are a lot of people who say, "I am not an artist." Those people are missing out on just how therapeutic art can be.

This is a special kind of art workshop. Seniors are invited to express their inner feelings with color. Those people living with pain, fear, anger, stress and grief, which they have experienced in their life, can now process their hurts. The fun and easy abstract art reflects your own personal life. The guided exercises are effective in encouraging and nurturing all participants to experience an emotional release and healing through their work with painting on canvas. 

Since 2001 more than 35,000 adults and children throughout the U.S. have benefited from Art4Healing. This extraordinary workshop will be held by artist Eileen Wallach, who will be in Crossville at the Fair Park Senior Center on Thursday, July 10, from 1 to 3 p.m. Space and supplies are limited, so you do need to sign up today by calling 484-7416 and asking for Tina. The arts at Fair Park are sponsored by Bilbrey Funeral Home.

This Friday morning at 9:45 a.m. come to the center and catch a few of the entertainers that were in this year’s Crossville’s Got Talent Show. Plan on playing some games, sponsored by the Life Care Center of Tennessee and stay for lunch while making new friends.

The Fair Park Senior Center is at 1433 Livingston Rd., just across from the fairgrounds. Check out the website,, or call 484-7416 for more information.

  • Gypsy Rose to visit Fair Park

    The Cumberland County Playhouse is currently performing the award-winning Broadway play “Gypsy.” A great American story set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, "Gypsy" portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer and stage mother Gypsy Rose Lee as she journeys across the country with her mother and sister during a time when Vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The complex character of Rose could be described as bold and brassy, as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters June and Louise into child stars.
