Jonas Gerard, Abstract Expressionism, & DIY Art Therapy

Jonas Gerard, Abstract Expressionism, & DIY Art Therapy

I wrote this article about the method of painting that I use as a coping skill for anxiety and depression. I strongly recommend that people who suffer from mental illness try a creative activity as a coping skill. Unfortunately, art therapy is underutilized due to a lack of insurance coverage. However, I advocate a do-it-yourself art therapy approach for everyone. Even those who do not suffer from mental illness can benefit from creative activities for stress management.

I decided to try HubPages. Apparently, some writers are making decent money with it. One thing that I like about HubPages is the ability to add links, photos, and video to your articles. If you'd like to give it a shot, just sign up- HubPages
It's free and you can write about anything that interests you.

1st Assignment in Color Theory Class

My color theory class is focused on the properties and role of color in graphic design. Only circles of various sizes were allowed to be used in this assignment. The first image had to feature a gradiant in hues.

This next image was to feature a gradiant in value while maintaining the same hue.

This image had to feature variations in saturation. I was going for portraying motion. What do you think?

Just a quick post to share the charcoal drawing I did for my final project for my drawing class. I call it "Art Therapy."
