    Dr. Jessica Rodriguez founded Art as Medicine 23 years ago in 1998. Her minor at CSUS was in studio art. She discovered that she was drawn to the work of RCAF over a 4-year period.
    The Royal Chicano Air Force (RCAF) is a Sacramento, California-based art collective, founded in 1970 by Ricardo Favela, José Montoya and Esteban Villa. It was one of the “most important collective artist groups” in the Chicano art movement in California during the 1970s and the 1980s and continues to be influential into the 21st century.
    She began working with the RCAF artists that worked with Cesar Chavez and eventually all became professors at CSUS. Their work was rather off the traditional grid if what is usually taught to students at a CSUS. She began working with Ricardo Favela, Jose Montoya, Louie the Foot and others. She was pushed outside of the normal approved art processes.
    She also realized that as an ACE’s kid, extensive abuse during her childhood, a foster care kid, addiction, homelessness and being shot in the heart March 9, 1991, sudden death and living with the bullet in her heart, she began experiencing a different type and level of healing.
    The trauma and anxiety she suffered for years began being tolerable, manageable, and experienced healing when putting pen, paint, to paper, silk screening and more.
    In 1998 she also had the amazing opportunity to attend Creativity and Madness in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1998. It changed my way of thinking, engaging in my life, creating quality decisions and relationships as I am navigating towards healing and resiliency. She attended the 2021 Creativity and Madness Conference in Santa Fe New Mexico in 2021. She has also been honored by being asked to present in 2022.
    This is one of the leading mental health/medical conferences offered throughout the world. From that conference, she founded Art as Medicine which she offers each year in the month of December. It is a perfect time to engage new commitments for the day and year to come.
    Each art piece she developed after she returned from Santa Fe immediately when she returned to California and began developing pictorial art. Her work drew endless attention and people who resonated with her work requested that they purchase her work.
    This need was to address deep damage, deep trauma she suffered and her work to begin at a soul level where spirit, mind, body, and heart was being healed was birthed.
    Her work has been exhibited in many prestigious galleries to including the Crocker Art Museum, Galleria Posada, 25-piece exhibit at the La Familia show at CAL Expo and installed in many private and public art collections throughout the world. She creates at least one new art piece annually which is develops over a 12-month period.
    She earned her first doctorate, 9/11/2004 and began developing Art as Medicine as an integrative process for patients to heal from unknown, unresolved trauma and a myriad of other mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical challenges.
    Dr. Rodriguez encourages mental health clinicians, psychologist and MD’s to attend this conference at least once in their life time.
    Enrich your soul, to bring the best of who you are to your patients, as you help them find their way through the woods.
    This workshop/training costs $85.00 to attend. All materials are included as well as breakfast nutrition and beverages. This event is limited to 20 registrants.
