DISCOVER YOUR TRUE SELF
THROUGH CREATIVE EXPRESSION
"It is a joy to be hidden, and a disaster not to be found.”
D. W. Winnicott
What is Art Psychotherapy?
Art psychotherapy is a way to explore internal and external worlds through the use of image-making. It embraces the idea that art is a means of symbolic communication and expresses emotions, personality, and other aspects of the human experience.
There may be things that are unable to be put into words and easier to express through imagery. Art-making can become a powerful mode of communication.
No special artistic skill, talent or ability is required, or in fact any previous experience with art.
Art psychotherapy can be beneficial for children, adolescents and adults.
It has been said that the process of creating art, in and of itself, has an innate capacity to heal.
