About dlasnowski

I have just completed graduate studies at Ursuline College in Pepper Pike, Ohio in art therapy and counseling. My goal is to create a community space where creativity can merge with nature. Our society is in need of a re-connection to the arts and nature. A creative and loving approach can change the world. It is hard to believe but two years have gone by since originally posting the above comment. It still holds true...this vision...time to take action and see the possibilities become a reality. Yesterday, I attended the SBA workshop at Firelands College with Rep. Marcy Kaptur hosting the event. She is such an inspiration and shared some great business ideas with me. I'll write more on this as it unfolds. I am looking forward to going to South Dakota next month with a group of art therapists from Ursuline College. We will be working with the Lakota-Sioux children. This has been a dream and now it is a reality. Keep focused on what you want and take small action steps toward your goal. Anything is possible.
