Hi, my name is Melinda and I have a passion for art , and  painting had been my hobby for some time. I  attended the Healing Arts Toolkit program training that inspired me to use art activities as a healing tool with a group of  individuals whose lives had been impacted by a traumatic experience of some kind.  My mission is to bring beauty and healing through the arts and make our community more beautiful . About three years ago I opened up my own art school where I teach kids and young adults how to achieve their artistic potential. I agree with  Vincent Van Gogh when he said :" 

If you hear a voice within you say  you cannot paint, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced"
