Art therapy can be used to improve a wide range of wellness issues including Learning Disabilities, severe stress, behavioral and social difficulties, mental health issues, brain injuries, memory and cognition disorders, depression, and anxiety. Art Therapy uses a variety of art methods including drawing, painting, sculpture, and collage. Those who participate benefit from expressing themselves creatively.
An art therapy session differs from the typical art class because it focuses on the inner experience of each individual, their feelings, images, thoughts, ideas, perceptions, and imagination. The emphasis of art therapy is the creative process of making art to improve a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Benefits of art therapy include promoting personal development, increasing coping skills, and enhancing cognitive function.
