By following arttherapycast on twitter I found out about this awesome FREE art walk happening every Friday of every month, from now until October. If you can make your way to Vermont, this definitely sounds worth checking out! Read more here.

What do you consider "Art"?

Over my spring break I decided to check out some new exhibits at the MoMa (got in for free because I'm a SUNY student, that was pretty sweet!). I stumbled across Marina Abramovic's "performance" exhibit without even knowing it. As I passed the giant Tim Burton blue blow up ....thing.. and ventured to the second floor of the museum to find a massive taped off square on the granite floor and two people starring at each other across a table, in the center. After about 30 seconds of standing there, I said, " Okay, On to the next..."

I'm not going to say much at all about this non-profit organization, but I will say... I found myself smiling the whole length of this video. Check out ">RAW and tell me what you think, I think the smiling is contagious!


CALLING ALL ARTISTS:I stumbled across this monthly contest held by Utrecht's Art Supply! Each month a new artist is chosen by submitting a few images of their work, and a paragraph or two about themselves and what inspires them to THIS LINK. Selected artists will receive the reward of 50 buckaroos to www.utrechtart.com BUT the winner will receive exposure on facebook and twitter as Artist Of The Month! Talk about a great way to get your name out there! Learn more HERE! ALSO FOLLOW UTRECT ART SUPPLY ON TWITTER!

The Perfect Organization

Take a look at this non-profit organization. I'm a strong believer that the environment you surround yourself in has a strong effect on your mood. This organization tunes in to this concept full throttle!


Now, this certainly does not have any direct correlation with Art Therapy..buuuuuut I found it pretty interesting and made some connections! Over the weekend I volunteered at the TEDxNYED event in the city. Not only was it eye opening to see how crazy things are behind the scenes of such a huge event but I got to sit in on some pretty interesting lectures. The whole event was about the future of education, being divided into talks about participation, openness, media, networks and action. I'd like to see some talks on just how important art and creativity is to ones education! I think art should be incorporated into every child's education for the simple purpose of expressing themselves! To learn more about the event click here! TEDxNYED
