with Erika Cleveland
Meditation, guided visualizations, journaling and hands-on demonstrations will bring you to a place of safety where you can feel comfortable creating visual felted maps of your internal landscape. All that is needed is openness to play and willingness to be guided by your own creative spirit. Materials will be provided, though you may want to bring small items with which you can embellish your landscape.
Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.

About Erika Cleveland
Artist, writer, and healer, Erika Cleveland was trained as an art therapist at NYU. After working clinically for many years with children and adults in settings such as the International Center for the Disabled in NYC and Boston Children’s Hospital, she studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Her current focus is on the ways in which changes, big and small, cataclysmic and celebratory, force us to grow and reinvent ourselves. In addition to offering healing doll workshops, she makes commissioned healing dolls. Most recently she was juried into the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA where she makes and shows her dolls. When not at the Torpedo Factory, Erika can be found working in her tiny DC home studio. Or she might be hanging out with her husband, two kids (a teen and an almost-teen,) and her 100-pound bulldog who thinks he’s a lap dog.
