Therese, Michigan

I am at a crossroads in my life where something has to give, in order to be healthy, enjoy life and function in a productive, low-stress manner. I always knew that I wanted to create art, but it’s always been on the back burner for one reason or another. As a result of this program, I have made changes in my life to make art a priority. I have also learned tools for incorporating self-care into my life.

I think the program helped re-spark my creativity by experimenting with different methods of creating art, allowing my expression to flow through. The program helped me to create art without fear of imperfection. I found a unique style and “voice” that I am still developing. I learned several techniques of starting a canvas, loosening up my style, and creating art more freely, and I have established a pathway to selling my artwork in the near future.
