Perhaps the best place to start my first article for All Things Healing is with my own journey to becoming an Art Therapist. A journey that’s been long and convoluted, full of twists and turns, dead-ends and road blocks, false starts and turning back and starting all over again. Ah yes, not to mention lots of being lost and consequently, lots of searching - for both my own self and for a path that would serve me well through life...

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: Part of growing up is fighting with siblings. It is necessary for child development, but takes a toll on parents. Here is a fun activity to do with you children that has the added benefit of bringing more peace and serenity into your home. These calming jars are easy to make. Just follow the simple instructions in this video. When your children are angry or fighting, hand them the jar. Have them tip it upside down and shake gently. They will be mesmerized as they watch the contents spin and swirl around before floating back to the bottom. They won't be able to take your eyes off it! This is a wonderful way to calm and refocus an upset child. You may find that you want to keep one on your desk at work, too!

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: Vincent Van Gogh saw the world as an angry and mean place. He believed art and religion were there to console those who had been broken by life. He was lonely and judged to be insane by family and contemporaries. At 37, he ended his life -- at least, that is what we have been told. There is a new biography "Van Gogh: The Life" by Pullitzer Prize winning authors, Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, that looks into the life and sheds new light on the death of Vincent Van Gogh. Naifeh and White spent ten years with a team of researchers poring over everything that has been written by Van Gogh or about him. The Wall Street Journal describes their findings as "captivating."

Arts & Art Therapy


by Geron Countess

What do Napoleon Perdis, Robin Fredriksz, and Joey Mills have in common? Most people in film and fashion would say that they are three of the most gifted make-up artists in the industry. I am 15 years old and they are my heroes. I read and learn everything I can about them, so that I can follow in their large and impressive footsteps. Since an early age, makeup artistry has been my favorite form of art...


Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: All across the United States, public schools are making decisions about whether or not to continue to offer art as part of their curriculum. One thriving form of art is the makeup industry. Cosmetics is a $300 billion dollar a year industry, and young people are aspiring to enter the field. Here is one young girl's story about what she is doing to achieve her dreams.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: A video by Mia BloomBecker. 'The field of Art Therapy is growing, but many people still don't know what it entails. This is a film I made for my Film, Culture and Society class. The interviews are with Shaun McNiff, the Dean at Lesley University and Art Therapy expert, and my friends Jen Malloy and Maddie Dickerson. This was one of my favorite experiences I've ever had, and I hope the video is thought-provoking.'

by Karen Adler,
ATH Asst. Editor of Arts & Art Therapy

The creation of all life has a gestation period. As does the creation of a project or an artwork or a piece of writing - anything that one wishes to bring into the world. The moment of conception isn't always recognised as such. It's often only in hindsight that  the steps and stepping stones that have lead to the creation of something new can be identified...

ARTS & ART THERAPY
The Alternate Selves of the Artist

Sonia Weiss Durga 1929-2008

Art can be used to heal a psyche or express parts of that psyche that have no other avenue of expression. Sonia Weiss Durga's art is a good example of this. She was a deep, complex person with many aspects to her being.
