Everyone has their own unique voice for their story. Journey on Canvas was created as a way to help others find that voice. That's why I was excited to learn about Manhattan Arts International's Healing Power of Art Campaign. As part of the campaign Manhattan Arts International has created a list of partners and resources that support art and it's amazing power to heal. These partners and resources have a story to tell and they've used art to tell it. In the case of this initiative (and very often in our own lives), the story is one of healing. Here's where you can learn more about The Healing Power of Art: http://www.manhattanarts.com/Gallery/HealingPowerofArt_2010/HealingPartners.htm

Another wonderful resource created as part of this initiative is The Healing Power of Art Blog. It's a place where you can see art and learn about the story behind it. You can also learn about the artist behind the art: their story and their reason for creating. Please consider visiting the blog and learning more: http://healingpowerofart.blogspot.com/

Whether you think art might be a way to tell your story or not, you can still celebrate The Healing Power of Art. Maybe art making won't become a voice for your journey, but you can learn so much by listening to the voices of others. Please consider taking the time to check out these wonderful resources, and please let us know if they inspire you, guide you or, perhaps, heal you! Come celebrate with us and don't forget to come back and share! We want to know what you think about art and its power to heal.

Tears for Dancing
Age 42
 

The older I get the less I think about what I can get out of this life. Bad things happen here on Earth and no one is immune. I see my parents suffering, I watch terrible things happen to my friends and I see catastrophic events that create hell on Earth. Revelation 21:4 promises that someday God will wipe every tear from our eyes and the old order of things will pass away. I’m beginning to think that this promise isn’t so far away: it’s just waiting for us at the next stop. Maybe when we die we trade our tears for dancing and enter Heaven.
