What is Art Therapy?
Art Therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being.
The creative process involved in expressing one’s self artistically offers an outlet for individuals to channel issues as well as develop and manage their behaviors, emotional well-being, reduce stress, and improve self-esteem and mindful awareness.
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.
Who is this course for?
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 whereas art engages the individual in ways words just can’t.
Other indivuals who can greatly benefit from art therapy are those on the ADHD/ADD spectrum or those sufffering any form of social or emotional distress. Art therapy presents an effective means to address these issues since students are offered an outlet to channel their anxiety and aggression into the art making process.
The symbolic images that are generated allow students a capacity to express feelings and ideas regarding psychological conflicts and life experiences that are too emotionally loaded for verbal communication.
