Art Therapy

Art therapy is a supportive service provided to people and families currently receiving care or as part of a grief support program. It is a therapy that promotes well-being for all ages through personal, one-on-one interaction with a trained therapist and art materials. Among other benefits, research and studies reveal art therapies positive impact on:

  • Coping with life changes and transitions
  • Personal growth and insight
  • Stress reduction and pain management
  • Decision making/clarity
  • Expression of feelings
  • Communication with self and others

During a  session, you will explore yourself and your experiences through the creative process. There is no need to have developed art abilities since art therapy is geared towards discovery and expression. Visits are designed for each person’s needs and goals, making use of a variety of art materials. People of any age may benefit from this therapy. You may learn more at arttherapy.org.
