Expressive Art Therapy offers an outlet for individuals to communicate and channel emotions in ways words just can’t with the aim to improve cognitive as well as social and emotional well-being.

 
AK Malta offers workshops in expressive art therapy for both young and adult learners with the aim of improving a person’s physcial, cognitive and emotional well-being. 
 
What to Expect from these sessions? These sessions offer a non-instructive yet proactive learning exprience towards artistic communication and self-expression. The creative process involved in expressing one’s self artistically can help people to resolve issues as well as develop and manage their behaviors and feelings, reduce stress, and improve self-esteem and mindful awareness.

Who can benefit from Art Therapy?

For the most part, anyone can use art therapy. In a world where there is a multitude of ways to communicate and express one’s self, expressive arts therapy is yet another.

One of the major differences between art therapy and other forms of communication is that most other forms of communication elicit the use of words or language as a means of communication. Often times, humans are incapable of expressing themselves within this limited range. One of the beauties of art as therapy is the ability for a person to express his/her feelings through any form of art.

Though there are other types of expressive therapies (such as the performing arts), expressive art therapy as discussed here typically utilizes more traditional forms of art…such as painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, or a variety of other types of visual art expression.
