Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Hand artists are taking their art off canvas or the page and onto their hands. These paintings are so creative and the animals look so real! This is the best collection of a variety of different hand paintings that I could find.

Editor's Note: Marina Petro's paintings are inspiring and uplifting. They hold a healing presence that all can feel the energies of the guides, angels and powers that be that have a profound affect. She can feel into the soul of the needs of people and then paint what they need to transform. We all have the ability to heal and it is through color and Marina's ability to see into the other world, the veiled spiritual world, that she can bring healing and soulful inspiration to those in need. This artist is truly a remarkable and soulful woman who wants to hold the world in light, color and beauty...

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: The Mental Health Council of Australia reports that one in five Australians currently suffer from mental illness annually.

In the midst of these alarming statistics, we turn to Denmark, a country leading the field of research in a different form of treatment for mental health patients - art therapy. The Kunst Museum is the leading institution in Denmark providing this therapy.

Meet patient and employee, Preben Stig Madson, who tells his story.

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

Phil Kent is my new landlord here in beautiful Killcare, on the Central Coast of NSW in Australia. Phil was a builder before he retired and leaving the building trade has enabled him to spend more time on his painting. Like most people I know who are involved in art, Phil doesn’t fit the stereotype of the mad artist. He’s someone who knows that, as with most things in life, it’s a matter of practicing your craft, working at it until, little by little, you start to see progress...

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: Learn about art as therapy. What is art therapy? For artist, Alison Sigethy, art has a meditative quality that helps our minds to slow down and relax. The longer version of this video will be released later.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: I view art therapy as involving all the arts, not just visual art. 'Learn about alcohol abuse and sober living in this video. See how music is a great way to rechannel your energy in a positive way.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: I view storytelling as part of my practice as an art therapist. The power and immense benefit of telling your own story is exemplified in this new documentary about 'normal' people who undergo extreme states which are often misdiagnosed as psychosis. The results of such misdiagnoses can be life-destroying whereas the understanding of your own process and experience can ultimately be profoundly life-enhancing.
From youtube - 'HEALING VOICES is a feature length documentary currently in Production, examining mainstream mental healthcare in the US, and the experience commonly labeled as "psychosis".

Curator's Statement from Marie' Sakai: John Van Dreal has shown in numerous shows and has collections in museums and in universities in the United States. His work demonstrates the figure in all its illumination, specifically how light illuminates the figure from within and without. In his "Work in Progress" there is a definite continuation that recalls the realistic artists of European and early American artists. His subtle warm neutrals create a sense of timelessness that not only creates luminous figures, but also conveys a deepening to symbology of the figure's gestures. John Van Dreal's paintings are full of complex and simple lay-outs that bring the composition to its height and gives light to his subject matter. Realistic yet dream-like, these images hold a purity and continues a dialogue between the figures and the flora motifs. Emblems of white roses and women draped in cloth bring to mind feminine beauty in all its glory and love. Allegorical references and specific motifs speak to a narrative of beauty, purity, and hope. Thus, John Van Dreal weaves all of these elements together successfully to create a sacred space for his figures that embues a sense of realization of Beauty Herself.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: As a literary buff, do you often find yourself trying to find ways to mark the pages of your favorite novel? Here is a great craft to make beautiful and inexpensive bookmarks. It is so easy and it is a fun activity to do with children of all ages.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: I have always taken the view that art therapy encompasses the use of the arts as opposed to visual art alone. This perspective allows a far more comprehensive view of how the arts are used in healing. Documentary film making is one art form which has a particular power to inform, educate, change and thereby, heal.

The Anonymous People is a documentary film of the recovery movement in mental health and addictions. It sheds light on an area of life which affects a vast number of people in our society.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Tape transfer is a fun and beautiful way to transfer a favorite image to a more permanent setting. With my clients I like to use blank playing cards to transfer the image and write affirmations. The results are beautiful and make lovely gifts.

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.
