Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: When Jarrett J. Krosoczka was a child he didn’t play sports, but he loved art. He depicts the funny and touching story of a little boy who pursued a simple passion: to draw and write stories. With the help of supportive family and teachers, this child grew up to become the successful creator of beloved children’s book characters, and a vocal advocate for arts education.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: When Severn Cullis-Suzuki stepped on stage at the plenary session of the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, she knew this was her one opportunity to speak to the world’s most influential decision-makers. Just twelve years old at the time, she seized her once-in-a-lifetime chance to tell every politician, businessman and journalist at the UN: “You are what you do, not what you say… I challenge you, please make your actions reflect your words.” More than 21 million people have watched the speech on YouTube, where you can see that her address to silenced the entire plenary session. Severn’s young voice made it unmistakably clear why we all must take immediate action to save the environment.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: The Shanghai World Expo concluded after 184 days in Shanghai on Oct. 31, 2010. 246 countries and international organizations participated, and the event attracted a record 73 million visitors.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Three dimensional street art is surprising and always gets a reaction. 3D street art is a matter of perspective. If you look at it from one angle it appears distorted and flat, but seen from another it absolutely comes alive. This process is called anamorphosis and requires the viewer to stand at a certain angle to view the three dimensional image. These optical illusions are popping up on streets around the world. Here is a stunning compilation set to Japan Classical 128.

Arts & Art Therapy 


by Laurence Kingston

Nicholas was an absolutely beautiful little 6-year-old boy. He loved sharks, Lego, playing guitar, driving his police car, and his wonderful family. He used to tell his Mom and his Grandmother that he had 300 friends, but judging from all the lives he has touched in his short life I think he has many more than that...

 

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Nicholas was an absolutely beautiful little 6 year old boy who died in a tragic accident. Every single thing about his death is just unbelievably sad except for one: that his family donated his organs. As sad as this is for them, the act of giving organs will absolutely transform the lives of people that will be the recipients. Nicholas' family knows the art of giving selflessly and Nicholas will live on in the four lives that he has saved!

 

Arts & Art Therapy 


 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: There is an ongoing debate in the world of art therapy about whether a practice such as this can be called art therapy or whether it is therapeutic art. My personal take on the issue is that if the client/patient finds it beneficial to put thought into, use their own personal sense of design and take time out from their suffering to make something as delightful as this Wish Doll, then what we art therapists actually call it, is somewhat immaterial.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: The artist in this video is practicing the ancient Turkish art of Ebru, also known as paper marbling. Using water and pigment, he is creating a beautiful piece of art which he transfers to paper at the end of the video. This clip covers the whole process from start to finish.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Women are their own worst beauty critics. Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. This video is a sampling of a compelling social experiment that explored how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see. YOU are more beautiful than you think!

 

Arts & Art Therapy


by Julie Hoyle

As a child I would sit for hours creating detailed illustrations and writing stories of mystery and magic on long scrolls of paper. I loved the freedom of this expression and looking back I appreciate that this was an attempt to make sense of my world. I sought ways of bringing ‘other-worldly’ experiences into a concrete, tangible form...  


Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: Julie Hoyle expresses in her article the depth of what it means to be in the moment of art and in the moment of listening to the 'divine hint' as she calls it where we can step beyond the criticism of the mind and into the heart of knowing the deepness of feeling at one with all there is. She ends her article by saying, "When I get my small self out of the way, I am able to become empty enough to create a vehicle to express the inexpressible and to give form to the formless." Beautiful and moving, her words and her painting, The Merging, speaks volumes to her practice through art, yoga, and her guidance of the deepness of spirit, the Divine Hint.

When Annie Backshall lamented to a musician friend that she was devoid of musical talent, the friend said, ‘Yes, but this is your song.’ She was referring to Annie’s creation - Hatters Tea House in the tiny fishing village of Ettalong on the Central Coast of NSW...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: There is a very real sense in which we are ultimately responsible for our lives and that they are, indeed, our creations. It's therefore useful to have a healthy dose of self-knowledge and awareness when we come to crossroads in our lives and look at the journey ahead. Annie's Song is the story of one person's thinking and soul-searching at a major transition point in her life.

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.
