For Inspire Me Thursday this week I am grateful to my art therapy tutor Carol and am posting a picture we did together. It is an exercise we sometimes do in class which Carol calls a "visual conversation". One person makes a mark on the page then the next person reacts in some way to that mark, by extending it or blocking it for example. In this way a relationship emerges on the paper which will change and develop in tone, pace and content just like a real conversation.
It is liberating and rewarding to make a piece of art with another person. So this week I am grateful to Carol without whose positive influence I would not be here blogging (!) and being creative. I know I tend to go on about my art therapy class here but it is a truly fantastic group and inspired me for the first time since school to get out my sketch book and paints and I never looked back.
Thank you too to Melanie and everyone at IMT, after out brief pause, I am happy we are all back together. Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends.
