My dream has always been to work in the Artistic field and share that knowledge with others suffering from Bipolar Disorder and Depression. To me, art is a wonderful expression of feelings and imagination. Being a person who deals daily with Bipolar and depression, art expression really helps me make it through tuff times.
I would love to share my education with others that are having a hard time releasing their own issues in a positive productive way. Teaching others to be creative can help eliminate bad feelings and encourage them to be more positive about themselves and what they create. If I could help just one person through art expression that would make all my struggles going through school well worth it.
Art is great for any age young and old alike. Some people are not as talented as others but that does not mean anything in the art world. When you create something and feel accomplished that feeling can take a depressed person out of the dark and bring them into the light. I also believe that when a Bipolar person creates art that can bring a more positive feeling to that person and possibly bring them out of a bad episode.
Being creative in art should be pumped into every human’s brain no matter if they have issues or not. There are so many things that art can cover that anyone can do it if they just try. Anyone can do it you just have to try.
