The second lady is very supportive of art therapy, in an article we recently came across. At Art & Creativity for Healing, we are excited to see the Vice President’s wife, Karen Pence acknowledge the value of art therapy. Her interest is an important step in creating international awareness of utilizing the creative process as a way to express pain without words.
In the exclusive interview with the Associated Press, Mrs. Pence said “One thing I can bring to this as second lady is making people aware of what art therapy is and how it works. It’s not arts and crafts.”
We have personally witnessed a cathartic change in people’s attitude towards their lives when they are engaged with right brain activities. (painting, drawing, collage, etc.) The transformation comes when an individual utilizes the power of the creative process.
At Art & Creativity for Healing, we encourage emotional healing through art and creative expression for those living with pain, grief, fear or stress. Our courses have helped thousands express themselves when words just wouldn’t work.
