Art Therapy Pedalers bring art studio as they bike cross-country

Posted: Updated:
LIME SPRINGS (KWWL) - The Art Therapy Pedalers are setting out to travel cross-country with an art studio on wheels.  

Holly Wherry and Robert Caswell, both art therapists, say they are determined to spread a message of creativity and joyful art-making directly to anyone they meet. 

“Art making can be a liberating, invigorating part of our lives, and you don't have to be an art expert or skilled at drawing to enjoy it,” Wherry said. “You just have to be human and willing to explore a little. That's the part about art therapy we love, and that's what we wanted to share around the country. Art can bring people together; and art can help people feel better."

The trip will start in Lime Springs on Tuesday, go through Chicago, and then the route will return to the Mississippi River and head south, stopping at libraries, schools, and other sites along the way.
