"How I Spent My Summer!
Calling All Artists"
I would love to be able to give my students the opportunity to showcase their talents, so if anyone would like to volunteer to produce some art work for my new upcoming course. 
This new course is about teaching others how to use art therapy techniques for the purpose of helping them to heal. The point of the course is to demonstrate that art therapy and the creative process is inclusive and that everyone regardless of age, ability, or education, can benefit and can help others heal.
I was honored by having four of my submitted pieces of art work / photography accepted and applied to Libby Seery's new course. I worked in my chosen field of photography. I am pleased with the finished images as I worked hard to convey the message of each assignment.
