Dear SDVAN Visitors, Art Resources and Artists,


Art teaches nothing, except the significance of life. Henry Miller

As we all plan our individual celebrations of the season, I urge you to take a drive around your neighborhoods and look at the amazing array of lights signaling hope in the new year. Lonnie Burstein Hewitt and Maurice has done so and created a story to Brighten Your Nights with Holiday Light Art. The annual SDVAN State of the arts concentrates on our creative industry and how it has been impacted by the pandemic in State of the Arts 2021: San Diego Creative Industry by the Numbers .

This month's banner is in support of Compassionate Youth Concerned with Mental Health, Zoom Discussions on Sat/Sun Jan 9/10th, 2021 will cover 4 topics: Coping with Anxiety and Worries, Overcoming Depression and Hopelessness, Diversity, Inclusiveness and Equity, Understanding Autism each with a 1 1/2-hour session that has been prepared by youth ambassadors, guidance counselors and compassionate lead artists “Art can express beyond words and heal hearts. COVID, climate change, and political turmoil and racial tensions have created soaring suicide rates, depression, loneliness and anxiety in youth. Artists need to participate in our discussions.” - Kira Carrillo Corser, Co-Founder of Compassionate Arts in Action and Posts for Peace and Justice national projects. Produced by Compassionate Arts San Diego ,    Youth are invited to join in the live zoom discussion or streaming live on Facebook at Compassionate Arts/Posts for Peace and Justice .

On a personal note: I choose not to reflect on the year that has passed but instead look forward to a roast duck for Christmas, a new year full of possibilities and the hopes for good health for one and all.

If you know a young person who is suffering from anxiety, depression, bullying or autism, please encourage them to participate in the Jan 9/10  Compassionate Youth Concerned with Mental Health, Zoom Discussions. The isolation and fear and tension that our youth is exposed to right now makes them too often silent victims of the pandemic.
