Art of Healing is open to anyone (ages 16 & up) in need of reflective time, including caregivers, survivors, and those who have lost a loved one. The art outreach program is free, but requires participants to register in advance.

About the Instructor:

Raised in Ormond by the Sea, Elizabeth Guillén has been a local beachside resident for over 35 years. She says, “the beach is my zen, my peace.” As a hairdresser for over 20 years and a boutique salon owner for over 13 years, she has built beautiful relationships with amazing clients while infusing her days with creativity and self-care. She enjoys practicing yoga and meditation, spending time with family and friends, and finding different creative outlets to explore with her 2 boys and future husband. While researching unique floral ideas for her upcoming wedding, she discovered the art of wooden flowers, inspiring her to grow artistically in new ways. Elizabeth says, “I’ve learned there’s more to a haircut or color than external appearance. I love to create shapes and dimension with color, but the true satisfaction and joy is seeing a client light up because they can see their inner beauty shine outwardly!" She has learned that many people have had to work through some difficult struggles and goals to let their light shine again. “Through The Art of Healing I’m honored for this opportunity to create beautiful pieces with beautiful people in unique and imaginative ways.”
