” I found I could say things with colors and shapes that I had no words for.”

 – Georgia O’Keefe

Art Therapy

As defined by the American Art Therapy Association (AATA), “Art therapy is a mental health profession in which clients, facilitated by the art therapist, 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/her sense of personal well-being.”

Art Therapy is a process wherein an individual(s) engages with art materials to:
  • express feelings
  • play
  • create healthy connections with others
  • organize
  • problem-solve
  • make decisions
  • increase frustration tolerance
  • empower oneself
  • increase self-esteem
  • increase impulse control
  • self-soothe
  • connect to one’s creativity & imagination
  • experience pleasure & joy
Art Therapy is a way to express feelings safely, feelings that cannot always be put into words.  It is a bridge to these feelings offering a path for expression.
Art Therapy is not an art class.  There is no judgement of the imagery created and expressed.  No artistic talent is required to find meaning and value in the creative process.
