Please enjoy the art, and words about the art processes that are posted here.
~*~ The blog is intended to inspire the creator within in us all by both seeing various mediums used, as well as reading how the pieces have been created and what they mean to the artist. We will be able to reply to posts with what they have encouraged in us or where they have led us imaginally. This blog is also intended to connect the Southwestern Community to the larger Art Therapy, and Artist Community. It will also be of great interest and value to prospective students, who will experience how Southwestern College approaches and values Art Therapy. ~*~
