Smash Art of Bemidji: boxing, painting, stress relief, and tapping into self
combining creativity and physicality to smash thru limitations
I don't want to to be spiritually bypassing the heavy stuff. That's not at all what I mean. What I mean is you face it, trusting that there will be a light at the end of the tunnel - facing those more uncomfortable emotions and getting them out. And then that's actually how you end up feeling lighter and releasing the heavy. – Amara Bedford, Painter, MA Art Therapy

Smash art is for people of all ages... the use of bright colors visually with movement and music that can demonstrate a mood to feel or to get out there. All those elements combined together feel like a way of unlocking chains in each person's life...energetic chains. If we can identify what those chains are, that gets us a step closer to breaking free. - Amara Bedford, Painter, MA Art Therapy
