From your profile I see we have many other things in common. I just started working again after 10 years as a stay at home mother. My new workplace is quite challenging–many ODD kids. I found myself coming home from work the other day thinking about quiting and getting a job in a flower shop. Thanks for the inspiring interview, it reminded me of why I got into the business.

People with special needs express themselves dynamically through exploring line, shape, and form, and experimenting with different mediums. Last year a group formed at one of our local neighbourhood learning centres, and it is so satisfying watching a group of people apply themselves in Art Form, and really very touching to witness joy and contentment being experienced with a person who suffered a Brain injury, watching him draw a horse from imagination, and reflect on childhood images, even though he has short memory loss, to see him slowly use his hands and eye, and participate in group, is so touching. I love watching the hand of the Artist in action, whatever is produced, when it is expressed in the Now, then what else matters! Lovely to read about your Art Therapy notes and quotations and view your Gallery,really like the decorative glove exhibits, and all is so tactile and colourful. Am sure alot of people have developed with Art Therapy and tuition, and it has helped to transform themselves through awareness and resourcing ideas. Art Therapy certainly has helped me as I developed Oesteo Arthritis, and have suffered with fatigue. By applying certain techniques, and exploring images it has become a part of my daily routine, and assisted with expressing Emotions.When once I was struck with muscular spasm,and shock, drawing and painting has been a healing experience. When one begins to heal, then all one wants to do is help other people to experience the Peace and creativity Art offers, and explore the World around us to really see and observe.Yes, Art Therapy really works!
