Sights, Sounds, and Senses

The Aesthetic Experience

If it's dancing, let it be dancing. If it's painting, let it be painting. If it's taking a blank stage and adding colored lights, costumed characters, and thought-provoking sets to tell a story... Let it be what it is.


Art is not just like therapy, for many it is therapy. Allow your students, allow yourself, to be immersed in the therapy of art! Whether you view it or you create it, immerse yourself in art!
