"Art make me, calm and fulfilled. Through writing you can express your desires and troubles through characters. Use them to show the world how you feel. The good and the bad. Writing is a release, a way to vent your problems while not attacking or making anyone feel bad for their shortcomings. Through stories and poetry, you can find peace of mind. An...awakening...so to speak." - John N.
"Art makes me focused. I find that when I am doing art, stress melts away, even if only for a short time."
"Art makes me feel at peace. It slows the overthinking and worrying of everday life." - Kathe C.
"Art Makes Me detail oriented and develops imagination. I enjoy a favorite western song "Ghost Riders In the Sky". I was curious if I could wood-burn and paint the lyrics onto a 11" X 22" oval wood. I used a combination of art skills: Pyrography (wood burning), acrylic paint, decoupage and carving. I even asked my older brother to send me a picture of him in a certain pose (old cowpoke)." - Larry B from Millstream Woodcarvers
**Even if you don't consider yourself an artist, art plays a role in your life. We challenge you to think about how art benefits YOU today!**
