Arts and Oils
Art with Meaning
Art makes me happy. Over the past years I have focused my studies on "Arts in Medicine". My interest in the study lead me to find out more by attending a certification training at the University of Florida. The things that I learned were amazing. Research has proven that Art can truly make a difference in the healing of both body and mind.
Shortly after my training, I lead several groups that focused on "sharing perspective through the lens", a university study dealing with resilience of a community after a disaster. I also lead vision board classes for those in addiction rehabilitation programs. The concept of expressive art was found to be a proven method in dealing with mental and emotional well-being.
I have taken my studies a bit further. By combining the benefits of essential oils into art which I call, "Arts and Oils", I have found added benefits that I enjoy sharing with all those that are seeking a life of wellness and happiness.

Join me on a journey into art and oils. Together we will learn about how expressive art can help to relieve stress and lead to a better sense of well-being. This course will combine expressive art and the use of essential oils. Come along with me as we dream, create and inspire.
A few topics that we will cover:
Put together a journal. Journals don't have to just be based around words. You can make an art journal as well, that lets you visually express your emotions.
Only use colors that calm you. Create a drawing or a painting using only colors that you find calming.
Create a calming collage. Choose images that you find soothing, calming or even meditative and combine them to create a collage to help you to relax.
