Boss Break: A Coloring & Artmaking Workshop

April 18 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

This Boss Break Coloring and Artmaking Workshop led by Sarah Stern will empower anyone who joins to create artwork about their chronic pain, invisible illnesses, or disabilities based on great chronic artists that have come before them.
Whether you are comfortable creating original work or would rather do some low-key adult coloring, there will be options to express your chronic illness story and visually track your symptoms.

Participants in the workshop will have the opportunity to submit their work and be featured by the Chronic Pain Project in a Portland, Oregon based exhibition.
