Began a new conference tonight: Open Art Studio Project. This is where one learns to teach the intersection between art and mental health. As I write those words, I think, does that need to be taught? Every artist already knows that art is therapeutic, that one's work can speak volumes of discovery and serve as a vehicle to another, more sheltered world, for a time. So, in essence, is OASP just a way to capitalize on their approach to use an intention as an approach to artwork? Does it seem more deliberate, therefore more valuable? I'm not sold on this.
