The experiencing of art evokes our emotions and touches different parts of our souls and minds. Those who create and appreciate art tend to be connected to their emotional bodies. Making art and sharing with others can be an essential part of healing, and our health is our gateway to inner peace. Come join me in this presentation for the gifts of your Art for Peace as well as gaining insights and inspiration.
For those of us who teach art or use art for peace building, we have arts’ overarching goal to reduce the transmission of separation and fear to peace, unity and love. We can build peace and unity from this current generation to future ones. Developing empathy through art while honoring the creative and healing process, also imparts leadership skills so children and adults can co-create a peaceful future for their communities.
