Facilitator of the Open Studio Process at the Open Studio Project, she enjoys making art in a group setting alongside class participants in the Connecting with the Creative Process ongoing series. Her artistic philosophy embraces Open Studio's egalitarianism and supportive non-interference in an atmosphere of "no comment," translated as non-judgmental acceptance of what is. Karen is co-author and illustrator of the children's book My Helpful Healing Touch. She is also a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner, certified clinical aromatherapist, Reiki master/teacher and energy worker with a private practice in Evanston, Illinois.

"Looking at Expressions" with Katharine Kiehn

Katharine Kiehn is the recipient of OSP's Gallery 901 Award, which recognizes one artist or group each year who has used art to engage a significant event, time, or situation in their lives. Katharine, an art therapist who works with adults with early-stage and early-onset dementia, is Coordinator of the Expressions Program at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital's Older Adult Services. The Expressions mission is to enrich the quality of life of the older person through a full range of services that appropriately responds to the person as she or he experiences needs and desires along the aging continuum. Expressions seeks to improve the quality of life for individuals newly diagnosed with Alzheimers disease and other dementias while providing support for both members and their families. By focusing on members' abilities rather than limitations, the program works to delay the effects of dementia through mental stimulation and skill formation, specifically through the creative arts.

 Show runs through June 28, 2015 5 - 7 p.m.
