LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Painting with a Twist and You Night have partnered up to host a scar art event -- ScART for short -- to connect cancers survivors with scars in hopes to create a more supportive environment.

The ScART event will be hosted at 6 p.m. Sunday in the Painting with a Twist art studio at 6816 Slide Rd., according to a company news release. Prior to the event participants will be asked to hand-sketch a picture of their scar, that will then be transferred onto a canvas by Painting with a Twist studio artists.

The event costs $55 per person and proceeds from the class will be donated to the We Lift You Up foundation.

"Emotional healing from surgical scars vary from one cancer survivor to the next, and talking about it often feels taboo," Lisa McKenzie, You Night founder and executive producer, said in the release. "ScART provides survivors the opportunity to gather and talk with other survivors, and hopefully help view their scars with a new lens."
