Power of Art Episode

The power of art lives in the many aspects of our lives; from the visual and beautiful expressions of painting and sculpture to the culinary arts and even the artistic meditation of daily exercise such as yoga. Carmel takes viewers on a colorful and creative journey as she meets up with two actors, Tina Louise (Ginger Grant from Gilligan’s island) and Tony Dow (Wally from Leave it to Beaver) who are enjoying second careers as artists. She will interact with the renowned pop artist Romero Britto as she learns from the master about the use of color. And finally using her culinary skills, Carmel teaches the art of food as she teams up with a food stylist to create a culinary masterpiece.

Research shows that enhanced creativity is associated with greater satisfaction as we age. All of the artistic energy we channeled as children through creative activities like coloring, dancing or playing a musical instrument challenged our minds. As adults the same theory holds true. Whether it be through painting or writing poetry, baby boomers who stay creative throughout their lives find themselves open to new ideas and experiences. In short, creativity keeps us young.
