A visual storytelling class by the Moffitt Arts in Medicine Program and the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts is scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sept. 9 at the downtown Tampa museum, 400 N. Ashley Drive.
The class by instructors Pierre Dutertre and Cathy Dutertre offers those affected by cancer and their caregivers a “chance to use photography as an outlet to share their unique story and experiences with cancer,” according to FMoPA.
The program “is designed to offer patients and their caregivers a variety of opportunities to experience the therapeutic benefits of the arts during a challenging time,” said FMoPA Executive Director Zora Carrier, Ph.D. “We’re proud to aid in their return back to a normal life with their loved ones through a holistic process, meaning a physical and also emotional recovery.”
The last day to enroll for the class is Sept 8. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the museum at 813-221-2222 to enroll or for more information.
The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts is dedicated to exhibiting important photographic art as central to contemporary life and culture. FMoPA is one of about 10 museums in the United States dedicated exclusively to photography, and one of two such museums in Florida.
