       “Art is Queen of the Sciences.”--Leonardo Da Vinci    
Art is healing because anything aesthetic, or pleasing to the senses, induces improved immune system and mood hormones, allowing the parasympathetic nervous system to override the sympathetic nervous system, for maintenance and repair to occur in the body.  Art provokes thought and meditative consciousness, increasing observational skills, understanding of the interconnectedness of all living things, and enhancing joy.
