We’re seeking stories written from a positive perspective that will serve as inspiration and hope for our readers.
If you’re an artist who has experienced art-making as a catalyst for healing The Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS invites you to submit your art and healing story for consideration.
We seek positive, uplifting articles that will offer education, hope and motivation for our readers.
We place priority on publishing articles by artists who have contributed to others with special needs. For example, read about Steve Barr and How Drawing Funny Pictures Help Kids Heal, or how Tracy Ellyn created a Memorial Art Piece in honor of journalist Steven Sotloff.
Other artists’ stories deal with how creating visual art helped artists cope with an emotional, psychological or physical challenge, like how Betsy Cole found herself again in art.
