What is Art Therapy?
Art therapy is a method of psychotherapy or expressive arts that helps facilitate the expression of feelings. You don’t have to be good at art to benefit from art therapy, as the focus is on the art process and not on the art product. The art therapist and client can use a variety of art mediums such as painting, drawing, collage, construction, clay, sculpture, and other.
