LOUD Art's Philosophy is derived from the founder of our organization, one of our artists,  Tara Vahab. Tara has been practicing visual arts for almost her entire life. However,   she   is  interested in    all     forms    of  art  and  creative activities and has been practicing music, dance, drama and culinary in different  stages  of  her  life.

She does not merely believe but is aware that creative practices are one of the most effective and easy ways of preventive treatments for optimizing mental health and maintenance of emotional balance in life.  Being an HSP, survivor of periodic anxiety and depression, her desire to help others and passion for creativity has lead her to do an extensive research on human psychology and psychoanalysis to find out the true purpose of  arts and creativity. She is documenting results of her researches in her upcoming book " Self-Therapy Through Art & Creativity" where she concludes  any form of art simply is a practice for positive psychology. Tara received her BFA from University of Calgary in 2015 not too long after which LOUD Art was founded. Her ultimate goal is to extend LOUD Art Society into an art and creativity centre where  easier access  to art and creative practices of any form is given to members of public.
