I had the pleasure to meet with Eileen Wallach the Founder of this wonderful Nashville gem, Your Heart on Art. Hear her story and learn how you can get involved in ‘Healing Wounded Hearts Through the Arts’.
‘Art is a powerful tool for change. Your Heart on Art‘s innovative workshops incorporate art’s compelling benefits to transform people’s lives. In a safe, criticism-free environment, participants look within themselves and discover how to articulate emotions and events using paint and colors. Creative expression can alter a person’s outlook and the way he or she functions in the world. It also increases self-awareness, coping skills and the confidence to work through uncomfortable thoughts and feelings.’
