ECHO Art Corner
Welcome to our little corner of the web. We’re artists, art lovers and advocates for artists in recovery and, really, art for us all!
Art is a powerful tool that has the ability to teach, heal and tell a story that connects us in unique ways.
As addiction recovery professionals, we are focused on helping more people use art to help overcome substance abuse and support long-term sobriety. However, we recognize the influential role art plays in all of our lives. From our appreciation of watching the arts and enjoying them publicly or privately in our homes to actually creating our own art in a wide range of formats, we are all touched by art in some way.
Here at ECHO we want to connect anyone who is interested in art for recovery by sharing educational information, tools and as many free resources as possible. Below you’ll find information on how our non-profit is currently supporting artists and art for recovery programs. Please join us if you can!
Are you an art teacher, art therapist or artists who can create and share a virtual class? Please consider joining our group to help teach art through our website via digital classes! We’re interested in working with anyone who is also passionate about art for recovery and wants to support the community and our cause.
Are you an artist or would you like to take free art classes focused on healing, recovery and mental health? Please, sign up and receive notifications of new classes. We’re building our virtual art classes now and will notify you when they are ready to access!
We love artists who have used art as a tool for recovery. Sharing your story helps others by allowing them to be a part of your recovery journey and better understand how art has played a role. We would love to feature your story on our website. We are also interested in working with artists to create new products for our Art Cart!
Art for Recovery Events
What started as our first annual local Art Show & Open Mic night, ended with COVID-19 after the first event. However, as we raise more donations and can invest into online events and reach even more artists and members in the recovery community. Events could be virtual actions, meetups or live speakers who are sharing their stories about being an artist in or for recovery.
