Our heroine has gone in search of the answers to life. Perhaps not all of life, maybe only the answers to her own  life, or perhaps she’s just in search of a little peace in this endlessly changing and complicated world...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: My life kept falling apart for a long time and for different reasons. So I came up with a folder on my Mac called options.doc and by a process of elimination, decided to become a writer and researcher. Now I combine writing and research with art therapy.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: A truly beautiful and magnificent contribution from a young man whose message is 'You don't have to find out you're dieing to start living."

Empty bottles make great decorations, chairs, tables, fixtures in the home, chandeliers, water fountains- and even building materials for the structure of the house itself!

A stunning example of artistry and imagination. Who knew reclaimed materials could be so deluxe?

1. Speak your pain without words...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: If you are in a family, have friends, and interact with other people, then you are inevitably going to deal with conflict. The question is never whether or not there will be conflict. The question is how are you going to deal with it. The difference between happy and unhappy relationships is not the absence of conflict. It is the presence of forgiveness. It truly is our deepest need and our most difficult and highest achievement.

Expansive, peaceful views of nature, with calm waters and verdant trees and colorful flowers, are some of the most psychologically beneficial images for patients who are recovering from surgery, according to the findings of Roger S. Ulrich, PhD, Director of The Center for Health Design. Dr. Ulrich's research proved that such positive scenes of nature can substantially improve patient outcomes...

 

Editor's Note: Using evidence-based design, artist Ellen Joseph combines research and art to produce paintings and murals that reduce the negative emotional and physiological effects of stress.

 

Arts & Art Therapy


by Giroa Carmi, MA, ATR-BC, LCAT, BCPC, BCIM

I think everybody accepts that making art can be good for you. A wonderful example appeared recently in a documentary on PBS about an open studio project in a hospital upstate. A professional artist with a crusading ambition to help patients was given a big space and a big budget. Easels and artist quality materials were bought. The studio opened and was made available for many hours daily. Patients were encouraged to come and make art...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Giroa Carmi's article highlights the differences between the therapeutic effects of making art and how art therapists use artmaking in a way that is so uniquely effective.

 

Arts & Art Therapy 


 

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Art, as defined by the dictionary, is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination. This experiment in art therapy is designed to focus exclusively on positive emotions, personal control and a sense of meaning. Can art really make you happier? You can read the study or just watch the experiment as Julian recreates it for YouTube.

“Artists roam the earth with wide eyes, cultivating artistic inspiration as they amass found objects and other material for their artwork. Most do not need much for inspiration to begin blossoming…” Kelsi Maree Borland...

 

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: The more time we invest in our creativity, the more we will get out of it. With time and dedication, our creativity can take us places that we might have never dreamed! Are you putting the time into creativity to get the results you desire? Do you need to invest more time in it? Sometimes you need to just carve out a little bit of time each day to pull away and let your creativity run free. The more time you invest in creativity, the more you will get out of it. Try making an inspiration box and see just how far your creativity will take you!

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: This is a time-lapse video showing the process of making an art journal page. Art journals are fun and therapeutic. I hope this inspires you to make one of your own!

 

Arts & Art Therapy


by Jenn Bender

St. John of the Cross gave us the term dark night of the soul, but it is a theme that has been written about by almost every great poet and mystic. Love and dark nights of the soul, the two extremes of living...

 

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: The dark nights of the soul sounds like something that you would want to avoid. These are the parts of the human journey when you lose a loved one or treasured relationship, face career disappointments, aging, illness, or realize the ongoing dissatisfaction with life. This article by Jenn Bender is about honoring these fragile periods in our lives to delve into the souls deepest needs and finding restoration. It is the art of finding meaning and healing.

 

Arts & Art Therapy 


by Hollie Chantiles

It's raining. Again. So much for long summer days off hiking and working in the yard. The storms have been so bad here...on and off, and then so humid in between. Having only one room with Air Conditioning is fine most of the time ( I lived in Baltimore for years with none at all) but I do wish we at least had a better cross-breeze in the house. Everything seems so stale...

 

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Hollie is an artist who paints draws and inspires others. Her article is an except from her first book. Finding Home Sweet Home, An interactive journal to find inspiration.  Her whimsical images are thought provoking and universal.  She helps us gain access to the parts  that we have hidden and buried deep inside.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: An advertiement re. arts education that could just as easily be applied to the benefits of art therapy.

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.
