The purpose of Feel It! Project is to combine the creative interpretation of a musician, visual artist and a literary artist in creating an art piece that conveying emotions. One of the hardest things for people to do is to express their emotions. Yet emotional literacy, understanding our emotions is an important component of our overall well-being.

The mediums artists use to communicate are different, but what happens when the creative energy of music, art and poetry come together and capture the expression of emotion on canvas with words? How do we express our full range of emotions through the creation of art?  Feel It! Exhibit will explore these questions creating art expressing the ranges of human emotion resulting from a fusion of music, art and poetry.
