Art Therapy is an integrative mental health and human services practice that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship. Art Therapy bridges the gap between the conscious and unconscious mind, bringing to light mental, emotional, and spiritual blocks and creates greater focus on areas on concern. Creating art can offer a means of expression of ideas and worries that may not be accessible to the client in words. It can externalize and make tangible ideas, concerns, and unfolding material that arises. The use of Art Therapy can enhance mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being. Engaging in art-making in a therapeutic setting can spark imagination and support integrated learning through the use of varying materials and providing different sensory experiences.

Creating something is always very calming for me. Creativity allows for freedom in more ways than you think. Amazing opportunity to participate in a Fold Forming class @capregionartscenter . Thank you @moonandbonejewelry for your patience and guidance. Looking forward to your next class.
This summer the @artassociation partnered with @jhlandtrust for a #PleinAir Kids Camp inviting young creators to seek inspiration from @jhlandtrust protected properties for three weeks. Artist and teacher Greg Houda used R Park’s diverse backdrop to teach three groups on the significance of incorporating ‘layers’ when painting. Visit R Park to create your masterpiece! .
Thanks to the @LORFoundation, we have been able to continue reclamation of R Park while keeping the park open and accessible. All park improvements are made possible by the $1.7 million grant awarded to @jhlandtrust by the #LORFoundation to complete the community’s vision of the park. We are thankful to be able to continue reclamation of these 40 acres of open space for all to enjoy.

They say that just before we die, a reel of our memories will flash before our eyes.. I don’t know if that’s true or not.. But I do know that I plan on living a life focused on beauty and love.. That I will do my best to capture, for my last film, moments that I’m convinced were sent from up above.. Moments that I will also leave here as I depart this earth, with wings spread like an ethereal dove... My spirit overflowing with peace, hope and love. 💙
