Cover Computer Art Painting by Glori Kohlmann
People need hope and comfort, whether it is in the healthcare settings or in the broader community. That is my mission - to bring empowerment and encourage others to live victoriously through rendering and enjoying art. In the next 5 Program Descriptions, I am taking you on a short journey to acquaint you with them in the community here in Central Florida.
One of the greatest stressors when un-well, is the inability to control when able to feel better enough to do normal life. Art activity takes the mind off the uncontrollable features of the everyday, and helps them focus on the moment- inspiring and comforting with art mediums and colors. It has been researched that doing art helps the healing process and reduce pain.
Individual "NOW" Art Attention
Sometimes patients may want to use the smaller art board with simply a paintbrush with water. They can express their feelings and it disappears when dry in a few minutes! They can talk about it if they want to. Or, I can refer them for professional help if that is what is needed.
About Hospital Lobby Art
Samples of Live Art done in Hospital Lobby and at Cancer Centers.and ER Wait Rooms. These are rendered on a portable easel while engaging in conversation with patients, families and staff. Prints are made of all work, given away for free.
Story Art for Narration and Inspirational Workshops
In this sample the top picture (20x24” on an easel) was drawn while story is narrated. “The Silver Box” is read in about 10 minutes for a therapy group – with the professional therapist present. This is ONE picture! The picture on the right is “illuminated” with a UV light and has been done ahead of time. There is a mysterious moral to the story that leads to discussion led by the therapist afterwards. This results are always a lively and heartfelt. Afterwards, we do a craft activity where participants create their own silver box according to the theme purpose during discussion.

There are multitudes of subjects done live usually with music, and are done in healthcare facilities, schools, and all sorts of community settings. The organization determines the theme and subjects.
