Ross River Recreation and Arts Programming, RPAY and Yukon College
Art and Recreation go hand and hand. It has been an honour for me to share with people my love of painting and realize that this is something that really improves the quality of of their lives. There is a lot of research about art as recreation and how it promotes health in a holistic way. I am not going to write a whole bunch about it here but will share with you Ross River's artwork from out last session together and my conviction that it is very healthy for them and me.
I am headed to Ross River again today, it is -38 out there, keep warm everyone and travel safe!
Samples below from last week's class in Ross River. It always amazes me when I see the results at the end of our time together.
