Art Therapy, is about making the unconscious … conscious.
Uninhibited art has power to heal, and is a direct route to the hidden areas of our psyche. It’s not about making art per se, it’s about letting your mind run free to see where it takes you.
Millions of people practice art therapy every day without even knowing it.
Millions more work with certified art therapists.
A pretty picture isn’t the goal.
The goal … is personal discovery.
Art therapists help you work through issues without having to talk directly about your feelings. It helps you feel empowered and reduces stress, and is a safe way to express and release emotions.
There is another form of unofficial and uncertified art therapy that has taken the art world by storm over the last decade, and it’s practiced mostly by women. Female art students flock to group art classes by the millions and do it in part for social interaction and to improve their mental health. Creating art is relaxing because it provides a break from a stressful life. It’s a form of meditation regardless of your technical skill as an artist.
