About Art Therapy
Art therapy is a discipline that incorporates creative methods of expression through visual art media.

Art therapy, as a creative arts therapy profession, originated in the fields of art and psychotherapy. (source: American Art Therapy Association AARTA).

No previous experience or skill level is required to participate in art therapy classes, and the primary goal is not to assess the participant’s image, but to enable change and growth on a personal level in a safe and nurturing environment.

For people with disabilities, art therapy can improve mental, physical, and emotional well-being. It offers an opportunity for self-expression, new coping strategies, and a way to communicate for people who find it hard to express their thoughts and feelings verbally.

Art therapy can improve motor function, cognitive function and facilitate cognitive training for people with brain injuries. For many people, it also delivers a sense of calmness and relaxation, provides a sense of accomplishment, and builds self-confidence.
