How Art helps Us Think
Art-making requires that we use our imaginative capacities to create form. In this way we refine our perception, develop skills and concepts, create ideas, express our individuality and cultivate our thoughts
My way of teaching is geared towards promoting personal and artistic growth through the development of drawing and painting techniques in an atmosphere conducive to the creative process of self-expression.
Art therapy can relieve stress and provide insight into the complexities of our personal lives and relationships. Self-expression and communication occur through the making of art as thoughts, ideas and emotions are expressed in a different way. No art skills are necessary.
Here I will post a gallery of some of my drawings and paintings.
