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...

by Ellen Joseph

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.

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.

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.

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.

“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!

Arts & Art Therapy


by Jenn Bender

Although my mind believes it is wise and knows best, it really doesn’t. My heart has more wisdom because it knows the greatest heights of joy and the deepest depths of pain. My brain decided it needed to have a talk with my heart about how hard it was working to protect it...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: According to Britannica Online, art is "the use of skill and imagination in the creation of aesthetic objects, environments, or experiences that can be shared with others." Jennifer Bender shares her art that can only be seen with the mind's eye.

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.
