National Geographic Magazine (Bakersfield)

Truxtun
condition: good
The Art for Healing Center is in need of magazines for their collage and art journaling classes. Images and words are cut out, arranged , and glued in place to create a piece of artwork that is very personal and meaningful to the individual. We would be incredibly grateful for National Geographic Magazines but would happily welcome magazines of any theme like nature, fashion, hobbies, cooking, travel, art, women's & men's, and current events.

The Art for Healing Center offers patients, families, and community members an opportunity to experience the healing benefits that may come from creative expression. The Art Cart takes the Art for Healing experience to the bedside for patients at Mercy and Memorial Hospitals. In an atmosphere where patients can feel out of control, the Art Cart offers a therapeutic and healing tool, reducing stress and loneliness and providing opportunities for self-expression.

The Art for Healing Center operates out of Mercy Hospital in downtown Bakersfield where community members can participate in a variety of activities: painting, charcoal drawing, Zentangle drawing, collage, & art journaling, as well as, open art studio time that is self-guided. They provide the opportunity for art making and creative expression free of charge. All programs are led by experienced facilitators who are seeking a respite from stress or health care concerns.

You can find more information & calendar at the Dignity Health website:
