There are experiences and feelings that words cannot capture alone. There are times we need to take a step back and look at a situation on a piece of paper. With art therapy, you get to let loose and let go.
You absolutely do not need any prior experience with art to participate and truly enjoy the benefits of art therapy. Art therapy is great for both teens, adults and families.
The type of art we do in art therapy is distinct from an art class due to the fact that your art will not be judged any in way for it’s aesthetic merits. Together, we’ll look into the deeper meanings of what you create in session. Expressions in art therapy can take many forms and materials can include; collage, painting, drawing and 3D materials (such as clay, popicle sticks, etc).
Benefits of art therapy:
-Improve feelings of compentency and empowerment
-Improve non-verbal communication between family members
-Find joy and pleasure in simply creating!
