In addition to its quarterly thematic e-publication, Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing also offers quarterly, donation-based online events featuring a different artist and artistic practice. Sunday, March 20, 2022, from 2:00-3:30 (EST) Toni Becker will host “The Art of Losing.” An intuitive, mixed media artist, healing art facilitator, and Reiki II practitioner, Becker will share her “experience with grief, the act and art of letting go through ritual, ceremony, and art that brings forth healing and a level of self-discovery.” She adds, “Grief is heavy but there is another side to it — one that will grace you with light and ease.” Visit the Snapdragon website for registration information.
The last issue of Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing of the year, featuring the last two stages of the grief cycle. Filled with poetry, creative nonfiction and photography by featured photographer Guilherme Bergamin.

The Summer 2021 issue of Snapdragon is out. This issue is filled with poetry, creative nonfiction, and photography from around the globe. This year, we’re focused on the stages of grief and using art to explore the various complexities of grief. This is our second issue of the series, and the theme is “anger.” But, rest assured, though the issue explores the raw pain of anger, it explores it beautifully and artistically. Read more info at the Snapdragon website.
Next month, Snapdragon will resume hosting their Art & Healing Popups. The donation-based online events feature a different artist and artistic practice each month. The series was on pause for the summer, but will return on Sunday, September 12 with “Introduction to Zentangle” with Vanesa Simon.
