Making art and creating can be great way to express yourself. Art therapy uses creative processes to help explore new ideas, examine the problems in your life, and to take risks towards discovering new ways to tap into your strengths and your inner creativity.
There is no right or wrong when you're being creative nor do you have to consider yourself an artist. Creativity can come in all different forms as every person expresses themselves in different ways.
Not only can we create art,
art creates us
Art therapy uses creative practices as a source to promote communication and self-expression.
Creative practices like drawing, painting, sculpting, crafting, and dancing help people express themselves more freely. Art therapy can be beneficial for both children and adults, providing relief, support and healthy coping mechanisms.
