Episode #38: Art and Recovery with Tamlin Allbritten

In this episode of Back Porch Chats, Vince and Jeanna talk to Tamlin Allbritten who has worked for 40 years with families, children, and people in rehab using art to help them understand each other, their feeling, and recovery.

During the month of January, Tamlin will be working with the Drug Education Council in Mobile, Alabama to celebrate Art in Recovery. They will have a booth at the art center in Fairhope on January 7th and the following week at the Mobile Art walk in Mobile Alabama.

  • How parents can learn about their children’s feelings from art.
  • Things (colors, objects, placements, etc.) have meanings.
