Creative Journey

.

.

This video (click on the link below) was published on Feb 3, 2013 as a tribute to the 
soldiers in the Warriors Transition Unit at Ft. Jackson, SC. This was the first Art 
Therapy project for which I and several other artists volunteered.

.

 The soldiers were shown a still life and asked to sketch it with the help 
of myself and several other artists on the floor. Some of the soldiers 
chose to sketch things other than the still life and were encouraged to do 
so - the program promoted freedom of self-expression.

.

The goal of the project was to help the men and women participating in 
the program to understand their emotional conflicts, develop social skills, 
improve self-esteem, manage addictions, reduce anxiety, and restore normal 
function to their lives.

.

Under the guidance of Brenda Oliver and Suzy Shealy, 
the program was enjoyed by all - participants and volunteers.  
What a journey it was for all of us!!!!!
