Cliff was a great motivational art facilitator who provided a safe and non-judgmental space for our youth to be able to open up and express their creativity. The experience was therapeutic, inspiring and fun! Thank you Cliff for being a part of our participants’ journey!

I love ART!

French Artist Louise Bourgeois once said, “Art is a guarantee to sanity”.

Making ART is soothing and nurturing. I believe making ART helps me to be healthier.  What I love most about therapeutic art is it’s about just creating and not trying to be a “good artist“. The focus becomes figuring out who you are and what you want to become.

The process of making ART is a complex experience for me; a mixture of inspiration, followed by periods of productivity, and concluding with feelings of accomplishment.

When I make ART, who I am comes out.
