On Sunday, March 24, at a second “Art Healing” program at International House Davis. We attracted about 25 people from the Davis/Sacramento area last month. Taught by husband and wife team of Bahram Khamjani and Jaleh Alavi, everyone became an artist, using canvases printed with Op Art-style figures from Marilyn Monroe to Michael Jackson. All supplies were provided by the artists. “Everyone can paint,” said Khamjani.
“The program was a joyful experience for all the participants coming from different ages and professions,” said Tata Monfared. of senses Cultural. The artists said that all stresses and worries leave as people begin working on their canvases, hence the healing part of “art healing.”
Monfared said she hopes that a continued series of Art Healing programs will lead to financial support for Senses Cultural philanthropic programs, including the making of a BYkids film in Afghanistan.
The I-House president Dr. Hamza El-Naklal:
“Thank you for all your good effort to help the community through art”.
