Art Therapy uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance physical, mental, cognitive, and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages. Because art therapy focuses on one’s create process, many gain powerful insights from art therapy without any previous experience. Art Therapy integrates the fields of visual art (drawing, painting, sculpture, and other art forms) and the creative process with counseling and psychotherapy. Research in the field confirms that the creative process used in art therapy may promote wellness by increasing self-expression and decreasing stress and anxiety. Participants in art therapy also may find more satisfactory ways to manage emotions and resolve conflicts by learning creative coping skills. Art therapy is used to treat social and emotional difficulties due to medical illness.
