Sharon Glazer, Creative Expressions Program – Gesher Human Services
Bolivia Scene 01
Bolivia Scene 01 is a watercolor painting with details made using crayon and marker. In the painting, there is a bright fairytale castle, glowing crown jewels, rhythmical fluttering butterflies, colorful fish swimming in mid-air, and sturdy rocks near the sea. Among the crown jewels, which hover in the center of the scene, there is a shiny green emerald necklace being held by friendly birds from a make-believe land called Bolivia. It feels like a place you would love to be so you can absorb the warm and brilliant scenery.

The Creative Expressions Program provides education, enrichment, cultural experiences, and professional arts opportunities for Gesher Human Services Artists, Writers, Performers, and Musicians. All of our programming takes place either at locations provided by our Community Partners or in-house at one of our Gesher Human Services buildings. Creative Expressions also has a virtual program online.
Our programming is not limited to just one art form. Thanks to our magnificent Community Partners, we are able to offer a broad range of activities in the visual arts (programs provided by The College for Creative Studies), literary and performing arts (programs provided by Matrix Theatre, Detroit Opera, and professionals in the field), music (programs provided by Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Drums on The Run), Music Therapy (programs provided by Creative Arts Therapies Inc.), as well as visual and expressive art therapy (programs provided by Let’s Art About It).
At Gesher Human Services, we believe in our Member Artists abilities. Creative Expressions works with them to develop programming that is challenging at times and therapeutic at others. We place no limits on what any one member can do, and we provide everyone with an environment that helps them grow creatively at their own pace as they move forward in their lives.
