Why Creative Arts Therapy?

Self-Discovery

I learned a lot about myself doing art with Ms. Baker. At first I didn’t think I could do what she was showing me but when I stopped over thinking it, it just flowed! I can do anything I put my mind to.

The Benefits:

What are the benefits of Creative Arts Therapy?

Self-Discovery

Creating art can help you acknowledge and recognize feelings that have been lurking in your subconscious.

 

Stress Relief

Living with anxiety, depression or emotional trauma can be very stressful both mentally and physically. Creating art can be used to relieve stress and relax your mind and body.

Self-Esteem

The process will give you a feeling of self-accomplishment which can be very valuable to improve your self-appreciation and confidence.

 

Self-Expression

Participants are taught how to express themselves and their emotions through art. They also have the opportunity to interpret other works of art.

Emotional Release

Creating art gives you a healthy outlet for expressing and letting go all your feelings and fears. Complex emotions such as sadness or anger sometimes cannot be expressed with words. When you are unable to express yourself, but you desire emotional release, making art may help you to do it. 

Get Lifted!

You will learn to lose yourself in the art and in the moment! This is essential to getting the most out of Creative arts therapy. Let go. Get Lifted!
