WHAT IS ART THERAPY ?

Art therapy is a sensory-based mental health profession integrating art making and counselling in a safe environment to promote, maintain, and improve mental and emotional health, as well as body-mind connection. Art therapy is a gentle, practical, and safe outlet to begin working on an issue if the problem seems insurmountable, overwhelming, or plainly, when words are just not enough.

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