Local Art Appreciation and Therapy
My name is Derrick Norman. I am currently a student at ASU and trying to find effective ways to introduce local Art to recovering Drug Addicts and Alcoholics in Phoenix and the surrounding areas. Give people in rehabilitation facilities a chance to get out and get inspired. Have a select group of dedicated people in the field of recovery to contact local galleries and museums to see what kind of offers they could provide for these rehabilitation centers. I currently have my Bachelors of Fine Art and am going back to school for my degree in Psychology(Substance Abuse). I believe Art Therapy and art appreciation would give recovering people another important health outlet in expressing themselves(Artist or not), While giving people interested in others a chance to be of service to others. If you have any input or would just like to communicate with me on the topic please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
