One of my goals is to become an Art Therapist. This year I was able to research and practice using various art mediums as well as gain various teaching experiences to help me towards that goal. I have been working every day towards creating art and taking steps in my art career I deciede that as a new years resolution that I would make art every day for a year. And I am very motivated to try as many new art related things as I can.
I am particularly interested in group collaboration and creating a disability arts festival in New Brunswick.
