Art as therapy
| News Today | News Today
THE MARINA ALTA ARTS SOCIETY (TASMA) is committed to creating a culture of respect, support and celebration of differences.
Over the summer, the TASMA committee started looking for a children’s charity that could benefit from their support.
“The concept is to promote art as therapy as an ongoing charitable affiliation,” explained TASMA President David Glover.
“We are happy to announce that we have identified the Colegio Especial Gargasindi Calpe, a local school for children with learning difficulties, as a partner,” he announced.
The Arts Society Marina Alta is working with the UK-based Arts Society’s Young Art program to provide additional future donations through monetary grants.
An art competition for the coverage of the Society of the Arts 2022 program was held in August and the works of the six winning artists were exhibited at the conference on October 7.
They will then be printed on greeting cards, which will be offered for sale to members and guests at the November and December meetings.
Proceeds from sales will go to school.
“Additional help may come from local sponsors, Society member volunteers and other opportunities and events throughout 2022 in coordination with the school,” added David Glover.
