Art Therapy is a type of psychotherapy that uses artistic media to help people explore their thoughts and emotions in a unique manner.
The idea behind this type of therapy is using art as the principal means for communication, something that can be very useful for who has difficulty in verbalizing their feelings. This therapy relies not on theory but on practice and uses objects such as brushes and paper. This helps people to feel more connected with the world around them.
Besides helping individuals with mental health issues, Art Therapy can be beneficial to a great number of people like little children, elderly man and women, teenagers and others. You don’t need to have experience with art or a special ability, your work won’t be criticized; it’s all about the expressed emotions and experimenting the whole process.
