Art Therapy

Often art can be used as therapy. “Art therapy” is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. What can be more relaxing and de-stressing then painting, drawing, or even coloring with friends? And whether you’re suffering from an illness, disease, mental health condition, severe stress or not, art can help nurious your soul. We recommend 1 – 3 servings per week!


 

Here are some actual definitions of “Art Therapy.”

Art therapy, sometimes called creative arts therapy or expressive arts therapy, encourages people to express and understand emotions through artistic expression and through the creative process. From The Free Dictionary

Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses art materials, such as paints, chalk and markers. Art therapy combines traditional psychotherapeutic theories and techniques with an understanding of the psychological aspects of the creative process, especially the affective properties of the different art materials. From Wikipedia

Art therapy involves the creation of art in order to increase awareness of self and others. This in turn may promote personal development, increase coping skills, and enhance cognitive function. It is based on personality theories, human development, psychology, family systems, and art education. Art therapists are trained in both art and psychological therapy. From The New Medicine
