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. 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. 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.
