A Child's Creativity
[Getty; Art Gallery Visit -03]
Art is universal; it dances with imagination as it takes on a whole journey of mystery... For the painter, it's a clearing which places mastery over that which imagination has brought forward....it heals...
In war-torn areas such as Iraq... the fear of attack, and experience of anxiety amongst the political unrest, take a very high toll on both social and emotional development of young children. I am sure that many not only suffer from traumatic disorders, but also face enormous difficulty in overcoming learning disabilities.
Since the age of five years old, I have been fortunate to have been encouraged as an Artist (painter).. Although I can not imagine what kind of stress these small children must experience during these tough times, I do know that the creative channel of Art can help heal every living thing...
According to the writings of Bernard L. Pacella M.D...
