Review for Art Therapy Studio, Cleveland, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It must be more than 10 years ago when I first wandered into an art gallery in Chagrin Falls where there was a sign in the back that said "Discover the Artist in You". I was depressed, working 11pm - 7am, divorced, and did not really trust very many people. What I did most of the time was cry. In the back of the gallery, there was a woman named Marty who was teaching a small group of women to paint. They were laughing and having fun, and they all talked to me. Marty said something like I should look around and come back next week. I told her I had no talent for painting, no talent for anything at all. I think Marty heard the desperation in my voice. Marty said she didn't care whether I could paint or not, it didn't matter. She would teach me.
Marty taught me to paint, and she helped me stop crying. She, and the women I painted with for a number of years, in large part, gave me my life back. The Art Therapy Studio was one of the best things that ever happened to me. I still paint at home, I work afternoon shift, I am perusing my BSN, and I trust more. Most importantly, I'm very simply, still alive!
