Art Therapis, 88, lives his own lessons

Don Jones, an art therapist, had a serious stroke which took his strength, hand-eye coordination and will to create. His wife Karen urged him to start painting, a job he has been practicing for years. Jones cofounded the American Art Therapy Association and Buckeye Art Therapy Association. Art therapy helps increase self-esteem and self-awareness and Jones is well versed in the techniques and benefits. “You can compensate in different areas and use it to improve your mood and feelings.”
