What is Art Therapy?
As stated by the Art Therapy Association, “Art Therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensory-motor functions, foster self-esteem, and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change.”
Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that utilizes art as a tool for self-expression. It encourages individuals to give voice to emotions through the artistic and creative process. You do not need to be a “good” artist to benefit from art therapy.
