Making Art with Women and Children

I received an invitation from one of the New York City emergency shelter to organize an art class for women and children who have been affected by emotional, economical, sexual or physical abuse.

It was a completely new experience for me as an artist and a private art teacher.
I’m glad I agreed to be part of this event. This experience taught me so many things about society, health, relationships and parenthood.
On my way back home to Hudson I contemplated a lot about my own life. And I realized how much me being an artist helps to overcome problems and issues which inevitably present themselves.
The joy and satisfaction of art making brings us back home where it is safe and less painful to be human in this world. Home it is not a place, it is a feeling.
Art bridges the gap between what is speakable and what is unspeakable.
Art-making provides support when words alone cannot express the feelings of chaos.

To all my artist friends, if you would like to volunteer and prepare you own art class and vision for women emergency shelter please contact my friend Ruby for further information. Phone: 4158878226
