On Feb. 24, a very successful “Art Healing” program was held at International House Davis, which attracted about 20 people from the Davis/Sacramento area. 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 Bahram.
“The program was a joyful experience for all the participants coming from different ages and professions,” said Tata Monfared. of Senses Cultural. And if you missed the first class, don’t worry because the next event, also at International House at 10 College Park in Davis, is taking place Sunday, March 24, also from 2 to 5 p.m.
The artists said that all stresses and worries leave as people begin working on their canvases.
Monfared 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.
