A.J. Bodnar shares his journey through pain to joy, and discusses the role of art in healing.
Art saves lives. That has been my experience. I will be sharing how art has carried me on my journey from childhood abuse in a dysfunctional family, through depression, and out to joy. There is no therapy to be had as a part of this class, merely the experience, strength, and hope of a fellow traveler in the midst of an unrelenting pandemic. The watchwords for the week will be gentleness, humor, love, and respect . . . and if we search for it, perhaps even some healing through the arts.
