It’s Friday. Yay. I’m off to Orlando next week for a trade show but I will really try to get some posts in. I wish I was going there for art…but it is not to be.
I think we should finish on a light note with art that is not serious. Actually I don’t think – in general – that art should be serious. It should be here to add beauty to our lives. Right? Actually that leads me to an article I wrote about Art in The Every Day. Here’s the first paragraph- please click through to read the rest.
While researching the world of art and where it fits into our daily lives I found a plethora of information about art therapy and how it is used to combat mental illness. Usually referred to as art therapy, art is taught in clinics and schools and is a way for those suffering from mental illness to communicate or to create through an art medium. While I appreciate the efforts and applaud those involved with art therapy – what I was really looking for was how art is reflected in our daily lives and how it makes us healthier in simple everyday living.

Till next week. Be good.
