Having experienced first hand the trans-formative and expressive power of art working with orphans, the homeless population, severely, emotionally disturbed adolescents and other individuals, Lindsay Hurtt, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Registered Art Therapist (ATR), started Global ARTery to make a difference through the use of creativity while expanding this approach on a global scale.
Lindsay Hurtt is a recent graduate of LMU and has traveled to Africa, Haiti and the Phillippines, creating an expressive environment surrounding art therapy workshops. Global ARTery intends on uniting people from around the globe using the language of the heART through the use of art-based projects or “ARTeries” as they like to call them. It is through these projects that Global ARTery hopes to spread the the power of creativity to heal and initiate a larger, global dialogue that generates greater awareness internally and externally.
