Fantastic February News

Updated: Jan 24, 2023

In 2021 the theme for February was "Love Your Art". During this time My Voice Media Center had just hired a new Project Coordinator, and a Peer Art Gallery was introduced. The participants were encouraged to Love the art they make, take pictures of their art and display it when possible. The Gallery at the Arts Consortium was filled with old and new art for participants to take home and/or sell to the public.

Our sessions focus on traditional art, new technology, and peer support. Please check out our calendar and see if the times work for you!




Celebrate wellness, recovery, and resilience with

My Voice Media Center Project.

This month's theme is “Fantastic February”, and the color of the month is Dark Orchid.

Our participants are encouraged to incorporate our monthly themes and colors within their artistic expression.

Last Month: “Joy for January”

  • The No Stigma Speakers Bureau presented at the Visalia Wellness Center, one of our partners in Tulare County

  • The painting session has been very successful with artist Heidi Steinman. Some of the paintings are featured on Fantastic February’s pamphlet/calendar.
