WHAT IS ART THERAPY ?

Art therapy is a sensory-based mental health profession integrating art making and counselling in a safe environment to promote and maintain mental and emotional health, as well as body-mind connection.

 

The complexities of life can be worked through and organized via the process and art exercises that marry the senses, movement, emotions, and cognitive functions.
