Seeing the Light Through Darkness

Seeing the Light Through Darkness

Most of us are having a really tough time right now. At the same time, beautiful things are happening all around us. At the beginning of the pandemic, when my business came to a complete halt, I had my own version of a three-year-old temper tantrum. It wasn’t pretty, but emotions are natural. It’s ok to be angry, sad, frustrated…

Embracing Discomfort

Embracing Discomfort

In this whole process of change, we’re spending more time in our homes than ever and we’ve needed to use our space differently. Many people are using this time to remodel their homes and yards. I wonder if, like me, they are seeing the spaces in their homes from a different perspective; realizing what works and what doesn’t. I’ve had…

Creative Break

Creative Break

In March, when my business suddenly changed, like most everyone else’s,  I was no longer facilitating in-house art therapy groups. I felt a deep loss. It was then that I realized how important it was to me to be creating within a community and interacting with people about their artwork.  It was very clear that I needed to create art…

Shared Art

Shared Art

Friendships and human connections add meaning to our life. As a child, I loved getting a letter in the mail from my pen pal; a little gift opened with great anticipation. I had equal joy writing a letter in reply as I thought of her delight in receiving it. I learned at an early age that writing can build relationships…

Rebalancing

Rebalancing

Have you taken the temperature of your mental health? With the recent increase in using thermometers to check for symptoms of COVID-19, I started thinking about the general imbalance of attention to our mind with respect to our overall well-being. We may seek advice from a nutrition expert when we want to eat healthier, or look to exercise experts to…

Art Activity: Mosaic Collage

Art Activity: Mosaic Collage

I don’t know about you, but during this stressful time I struggle to focus and my mind seems to wander more easily. To manage this, I’ve been using the art-making process of creating a mosaic collage out of old magazines, calendar pages, and advertisements. This art project involves ripping or cutting colorful paper into small pieces and gluing them onto…

Art Activity: Found Objects Mandala

Art Activity: Found Objects Mandala

We need to move! It’s important for our mental and emotional well-being to get up and move around when we’re confined to our homes. Step outside, smell the fresh air and explore the world around you. Movement or exercise breaks up the monotony of being isolated indoors. Need a little incentive? Challenge yourself to create art in the form of…

Creative Break

Creative Break

Our schedules are disrupted and our senses are either over- or under-stimulated because the normal things we hear, see, and touch in our daily routines have changed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Your emotions are real and valid. We all need ways to express strong emotions in productive ways that don’t diminish their value. Take a creative break. Making art…

Make Your Mark

We are born to create. It’s in our DNA. We were made in the image of the Master Artist himself, yet we often discount what is innate by saying “oh, I’m not good at art,” “I can’t draw” or “I’m not creative.” Maybe we narrow the definition of creativity to artistic ability alone. It’s as if there’s some unattainable, high…
