Art revolves around mind and body, heart and soul, think and touch, feel and explore. Art Therapy is a combination of art and psychology. Art therapy is the therapeutic use of art making. Through creating art and reflecting on the art products and processes, people can increase awareness of self and others. Art therapy fosters the use of both sides of the brain. The nonverbal art expression is primarily a right brain process; the writing comes from the left-brain language centres. Art Therapy helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behaviour, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self- awareness.
Art Therapy is a human service profession that utilizes art media, images, creative art processes and patient/client responses to the created products as reflections of an individual’s development, abilities, personality, interests, concerns and conflicts.
Art Therapy practice is based on knowledge of human developmental and psychological theories which are implemented in the full spectrum of models of assessment and treatment including educational, psychodynamic, cognitive, transpersonal and other therapeutic means of reconciling emotional conflicts, fostering self-awareness, developing social skills, managing behaviour, solving problems, reducing anxiety, aiding reality orientation and increasing self-esteem, awareness, and achieve insight.
Art therapy requires no artistic ability and no prior art experience is required.
How does art therapy work?
Areas to look in to in an art therapy setting:
Arts for Healing—Leisure and Pleasure, where clients can come to get therapeutic services, information, resources, and much-needed relaxation. Our concept is Integrated Music and Art Therapy. Combining auditory and visual stimuli in an interactive, fun and nurturing environment, helps promote language and speech, motor skills, socialization and personal development in children and adults. Music and art make up the universal language that is understood by all.
