Healing through Art
The Healing Properties of Art ECS gave us an in-depth look at how art can be used to heal ourselves and others. We learned about Clyfford Still’s museum and some interesting facts about his art. We learned he did not want to sell or give away his art, and instead preferred to store all of his art in one museum. Many cities bid for this honor, and Denver ultimately won. We spent the day dissecting some of his paintings, and discussing what we liked or didn’t like about a select few. The rest of the day was spent getting ready for the next three weeks. We made journals, began projects on art therapy and its importance to us and the rest of the world and continued to discuss how art improves our lives on a daily basis. I am extremely excited to embark on this journey, and I’m certain my peers are as well.
