Engaging Artists Week Two

June 24, 2014

We had a wonderfully motivating time last Thursday at the second session of our Engaging Artists program.


Todd Lester, founder of freeDimensional gave a great keynote speech and you can view his slideshow Arts/Culture as a Social Change Tool here: AVS_presentation

Martha Dorn (Executive Director of the Art Therapy Outreach Center) introduced to the practice of Art Therapy and Art Therapist Karen Gibbons spoke about using art to heal and communicate when words cannot suffice and led us through  a cathartic experiential exercise.
