Well Beings Studio
Well Beings Studio engages the creative arts to open communication and support emotional well-being of families impacted by cancer, other traumas and difficult times. We focus on understanding emotions; processing change, grief and loss; and utilizing reading, writing, and creative arts for well-being. We work to dismantle stigmas about cancer, emotions, and asking for help. We are committed to inclusion, equity, and sharing multiple voices and diverse perspectives on creativity and wellness.
Well Beings Studio (WBS) began in 2018 with the Little Green Monster Project, an original book and workshop created by executive director Sharon Frances, a breast cancer survivor, parent and artist with a doctorate in education. In its first year, the project supported over 2,000 families with book donations and free creative arts workshops. We learned that our approach to exploring emotions through creativity not only supported young people impacted by cancer but also those experiencing other traumas such as grief and loss. Well Beings Studio was born, ready to read, feel, create, heal.
