Why is Jacki Kellum teaching a painting class at Body in Balance Physical Therapy & Fitness Center What does art have to do with fitness? Well, experts agree that art is a necessary part of a balanced and fit body [and mind].
“But, if art builds up the human spirit rather then breaking it down, then it can build up a culture.”
“We make art because there is something inside the creative person that needs to get out. The poet, musician, actor, and visual artist all have a desire to express what they feel and to create something of great value. It’s a type of therapy or a form of meditation. Many do art for the pure joy of it.”http://painting.about.com/od/inspiration/a/what_is_art.htm
