Georgette Seabrooke Powell


Drop us a note if you’ve used art therapy or you are an art therapist. Did you know that Georgette Seabrooke Powell was one of the earliest proponents of using art in therapy?

According to Michelle Black Smith, “Troubled by the increasing homelessness seen on the streets of D.C. in the 70s and 80s due to shrinking mental health resources, and growing populations of war veterans and the unemployed, Georgette turned to her artwork to express her sympathy and outrage.”at-the-feet-of-a-master-what-georgette-seabrooke-powell-taught-me-about-art-activism-and-the-creative-sisterhood

“Powell considers art to be healing—from her murals in New York City hospitals to her work as an art therapist at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington, DC.” https://anacostia.si.edu/Exhibitions/Details/Art-Changes-Things-The-Art-and-Activism-of-Georgette-Seabrooke-Powell-1299

In her words: community was “a flexible and encompassing term that defines relationships with family, friends, fellow artist, neighbors . . .” https://cdi.anacostia.si.edu/2016/09/05/in-the-spirit-of-community-georgette-seabrooke-powell/

We celebrate Georgette Seabrooke Powell and all art educators and art therapists today!

Thank you for your compassion and service to man.
