Onli Studios hosted a workshop series in Practical Art Therapy Studio Applications as extra-curricular enrichment for dedicated and ambitious university students who wanted to grow beyond the limits of their classroom context. Here they learned more about the healing impact of various art making processes.  Prof. Onli was a clinical community based Art Therapist in Chicago for twelve years. He earned a M.A.A.T. in Art Therapy from the prestigious School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1989 after completing a Therapeutic  Internship at the Michael Reese Medical Center.
Onli is that rare visual artist whose practice includes Fine Art, Major Market Illustration, Wearable Art, Art Education and Art Therapy. It is noted that many celebrated high profile Fine Artists claim to be influenced by comics, cartoons or Graphic Novels, yet they never have worked in those areas. The notion of "High Art" versus "Low Art" was never a criterion for Onli's lifelong passion and dedication as a prolific Rhythmistic Future-Primitif Visual Artist. He coined the term "Rhythmism" in order to give a place to his and kindred artistic expressions that featured aspects of being Future-Primitif in nature, context or content. Typically the artists do not name the "ism'. For instance Picasso did not name Cubism. Van Gogh did not name Impressionism. Nor did Dali name Surrealism. For that matter Afrofuturism was not coined by Sun Ra. However Prof. Onli gives the Art World this "ism". "Rhythmism", as a Future-Primitif approach to the visual arts.
