How does making art help?
The use of art in a therapeutic setting has a way of moving knowledge from the subconscious to our conscious awareness. It is surprisingly powerful and helpful in terms of gaining insight and strengthening relationship to self. A person does not have to be artistically inclined in order to benefit from art therapy. The emphasis is not about creating a finished work of art, the emphasis is on the process and how it taps into your innate wisdom. Acknowledging and experiencing your own wisdom can be remarkably transformative.
