What’s it all about?
Art therapy, a hybrid field largely influenced by the disciplines of art and psychology, uses the creative process, and pieces of art created in therapy to help people develop self-awareness, explore emotions, address unresolved emotional conflicts, and improve social skills and self-esteem.
Art therapy primarily aims to help individuals experiencing emotional and psychological challenges achieve personal well-being and improved levels of function.
Art Therapy Groups can improve communication and concentration and can help reduce feelings of isolation. Because art therapy allows people to express feelings on any subject through creative work rather than with speech, it is believed to be particularly helpful for those who feel out of touch with their emotions or feelings. The creative process can help people express those thoughts, emotions, and experiences that may be difficult to speak about. Individuals experiencing difficulty discussing or remembering painful experiences may also find art therapy especially beneficial.
Who is invited?
Art therapy has been shown to benefit people of all ages, you do not need to have any previous artistic experience or natural artistic ability. The group is for anyone willing and open to work creatively with themselves and be a part of a group of like-minded people looking to further find love within themselves. The group space has a power that provides an incredible opportunity for connection, self-growth and resilience.
