"Art therapy can add great harmony to life"

art and life


This photo was taken in the music library. The artist Renate Lusis helps the girls from art school to depict the sounds of music in the language of the color. Members of the art therapy club Modus Vivendi participated here too. The patients were the viewers in the concrete case but they too have learned a lot. The beauty is much more than the kind of shapes in the artworks. The light becomes alive if we not only gaze at the sunbeam and copy what we see at a moment, but make conscious effort to comprehend our emotions and thus respond with our whole life.
