Love of art therapy

I Love Art Therapy




A while back I came across this great blog site that is geared towards art therapy(which is what I am going to school for to be an art therapist) and I thought that it would be cool to share with you guys the website. I will post the address on how to get to the site below so you can check it out, as well as a cute badge(that I got off the website) to show my support for art therapy.


Peace and love,

My own graffiti art



One of my many projects that I plan to do for the new year is to try my hand at graffiti art. I have been doinig some research and planning and I came across some really great images of graffiti art just to give me a few ideas and provide some inspiration as well. Right now I am still in the planning and research stage and have not yet started my actual work(school takes up so much of my time), but I do plan to post some pictures of my sketchs of my ideas of what I want to do for this project, hopefull sometime this weeked I can get them up. Until then have a blessed day and happy creating !



Peace and love,
