Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy involving the encouragement of free self-expression through the use of art media such as painting, drawing, sculpture or use of mixed media and other materials. Art therapists support their clients to:
“Use art media, the creative process, and the resulting artwork to explore their feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety, and increase self-esteem. A goal in art therapy is to improve or restore a client’s functioning and his or her sense of personal well-being” (American Art Therapy Association).
