Art as a Healing Force

By art, we always mean storytelling, poetry, music, dance, visual arts, painting, sculpture, everything that is usually thought of as creativity. We believe that art and healing are joining together to become one. As art and healing merge, the field of art will be changed and the field of medicine will be changed. For many of us, healing art is a spiritual path, a transformational process, a way of being.

Art for Healing

Supports emerging, professional, visual and performing artists with exhibitions, teaching opportunities and appearances at various private and public spaces. Offers interactive programs, such as art classes, readings, meditation with the use of art techniques, healing with colors, video screenings and community outreach programs for professional artists, as well as for interested people with little or no experience.

Arts and Healing Network

Arts and Healing Network is an on-line resource celebrating the connection between art and healing. Our web site serves as an international resource for anyone interested in the healing potential of art, especially environmentalists, social activists, artists, art professionals, health care practitioners, and those challenged by illness. Our hope is that the information presented here will educate and inspire.

Paintings That Heal

Original paintings created by Brent Atwater, a medical intuitive and healer, that eminate healing energy which activates physical healing for those with health issues and disorders. They are demonstrating the valuable role that artwork can play in enhancing the healing process.
